Under the theme of 'living traditions', <Fever> was created for the purpose of
considering the presence of Korean traditions in our lives today and restoring
our increasingly forgotten roots. By applying its distinctive colors to age-old
traditions, Ambiguous Dance Company introduces the most 'untraditional’
works that are based on 'traditions’. Such modern interpretations of traditions
invite us to observe our own unique traces that already exist within us, and
offer heung (joy, excitement) that will continue to live in the future.
Highly addictive rhythms produced by taepyeongso, sinawi and taryeong
induce the heung of Korean traditional sounds, while creating musical synergy
with live DJ music. The dancers on stage express unique movements
reminiscent of powerful runway walks and engage with the audience through
‘untraditional’ contemporaneous familiarity.

Ambiguous Dance Company was founded by choreographer
Kim Bo-ram and dancer Jang Kyeong-min in 2008.
The name of the group describes the “undefinable and ambiguous”
characteristics of their dance style.
Escaping from genres and preconceptions,
the group expresses what is in their hearts through physical movement and music.
Rather than focusing on delivering an artistic message or meaning,
they intend to convey the true nature and purity of humanity,
believing that the bodily expression of music
and dance form the most accurate and truest language.
