Ambiguous Dance Company: The Belt

Book tickets

The Coronet Theatre’s first-ever site-specific event

Does the past inform the future?

This September Korea’s highest-profile dance company will make a series of world premieres – a fully staged performance and a series of site-specific pieces – created specially for the atmospheric backstage corners of this 19th century theatre. High octane and daring, Ambiguous Dance Company‘s CV includes collaborations with Coldplay and the V&A’s Korean Wave exhibition.

Korean dance stars Ambiguous reflect on the story of the UK’s trailblazing innovation at the time the theatre was built, from the perspective of the most vibrant, inventive and astounding new cultures in the modern world.

The Belt is the world premiere of choreographer Boram Kim’s vision of the future:
For us to make work in this theatre which was built in 1898, at a time of technological revolution and which we feel mirrors the world we live in now in Korea, is a real privilege. This building has always been a platform for international innovation – from its opening to the current showcase of cutting-edge international work seen now.”

The Belt – An immersive Dance performance in two parts

Past
50 people each night will be able to step into the secret backstage world of Notting Hill’s landmark theatre to witness a pre-show mosaic of intimate dance cameos specially created for each site. 10 people at a time will be guided around previously unseen areas in a journey that takes you from the cellars to the dressing rooms, to attics used by fire watchers in WWII, and to the glorious rooftop cupola.

NB – there will be walking and a lot of steep stairs during this part of the event. Ts and Cs apply. Subject to availability.

Future
In an explosive fusion of simplicity and sophistication, Ambiguous Artistic Director Boram Kim sets out his vision of Korea’s creative future. This brand-new full-length piece sees the company’s superb dancers combine hip-hop, ballet and acrobatics in playful, pulsating dance, bringing the energy of the new Korea to the Coronet main stage.

Additional Information

Ambiguous Dance Company
Ambiguous gained global recognition through their collaboration with pop sensation Coldplay, their wildly popular Higher Power video which achieved over 600 million views on YouTube, as well as their collaborations with Gucci and BMW, reinforcing their status as one the country’s most prominent collectives. Founded by choreographer Boram Kim and dancer Kyeongmin Jang in 2008, the name of the group perfectly describes the “undefinable” characteristics of their genre-defying dance.
