Stable balance? Doesn’t exist in the physical universe – the natural law of entropy always introduces chaos into order. The choreographer Lee Jaeyoung is interested in these transitions from order into chaos and realignment in a social sense as well: in Equilibrium two dancers test out their potential for conflict and compromise. They approach one another threateningly, exchange looks of contempt, mechanically lock arms in a fight for superiority, then fall out of these robot-like movements into a stylised battle and a synchronised choreography, before the showdown begins again. Inspired by the sci-fi film Equilibrium, in which a totalitarian regime punishes art and emotion, and Jeremy Rifkin’s book on entropy, Lee Jaeyoung and his company SIGA explore how conflict becomes cooperation. Lee studied dance and choreography at the Seoul Institute of the Arts and Haunsung University. In 2009 he was chosen as best newcomer choreographer by the Contemporary Dance Association of Korea. In 2013 he founded SIGA with the intention of extending contemporary dance through other art forms and dance styles. Equilibrium was premiered at the SIDance Festival in Seoul and is being shown in Europe for the first time. 

Duration: 20min
