About Us

Described as a dance company 'at the top of its game', The Human Expression Dance Company (T.H.E), along with our semi-professional training arm, T.H.E Second Company, are names synonymous with ground breaking contemporary dance of the highest quality and artistry.

Founded in 2008 by Artistic Director Kuik Swee Boon with 6 members, T.H.E has become a household name in Singapore and the region, having commissioned and performed at most major local arts festivals and in prestigious international festivals such as Les Hivernales Festival in Avignon, France; Oriente Occidente Festival in Rovereto, Italy; SIDance Festival and Seoul Performing Arts Festival in South Korea; amongst others.

With our unique brand of highly physical and kinetic works, T.H.E digs deep into the universal human experience. At the heart of our works lies a connection with heritage and collective history as Singaporeans, juxtaposed with incisive, insightful observations on modern society: elements that set apart our repertoire of original creations. A continual pursuit of authentic expression led Kuik to initiate the "HollowBody" methodology. The practice aims to nurture our dancers as all-rounded performers able to convey the essence of their identity and lived experiences through the full spectrum of physical, emotional, philosophical and meaningful expression.

T.H.E is a registered charity with IPC status.

Our Programmes

Driven by a desire to create an inspiring and nurturing platform for local and regional dance artists, we initiated the very first annual Singapore contemporary dance festival CONTACT in 2010. Testament to its quality offerings and indelible impact, long-time Company platinum donor M1 Limited came onboard as the Festival's title donor from 2014. However, due to a recent change in direction, M1 Limited's annual donation has ceased. T.H.E is now on a lookout for new donors and sponsors who can help us to continue to play our part in the local, regional and worldwide contemporary dance scene.

Besides regular productions, international tours and our annual Festival, T.H.E also conducts regular public studio classes and workshops of various levels, and performs in schools and communities to share the craft and the love of contemporary dance. Through the creation and performance of our original work, as well as through our research, practice and training of the HollowBody methodology, we seek to actively engage society and promote thoughtful living where audiences of diverse backgrounds are engaged and included in our conversations.
