Organised Chaos is borne of an ongoing conversation between artistic director Swee Boon KUIK and resident Korean choreographer Jae Duk KIM on the universal human condition, a response to global current affairs in an increasingly absurd, chaotic world. Working apart at first, each choreographer casts a critical eye on the social norms that dictate human behaviour, tearing apart all that appears logical and rational in order to forge their own interpretation in dance

Swee Boon KUIK

Founder and Artistic Director of T.H.E Dance Company and the CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival. He was the first Asian principal male dancer with Spain’s Compania Nacional de Danza from 2002 to 2007. During his career, he worked mainly with Nacho Duato as well as renowned choreographers including Jiri Kylian, Mats Ek, Ohad Naharin and Wim Vandekeybus. He began his dance career in 1990 with the Singapore People’s Association Dance Company and Singapore Dance Theatre. Swee Boon’s exceptional artistry led him to receive a nomination in 2003 for the Benois De La Danse Award. In 2007, he was awarded the Young Artist Award from the National Arts Council of Singapore (NAC).
