T.H.E Second Company was founded in 2008 by Artistic Director, Kuik Swee Boon and Associate Artistic Director, Silvia Yong. T.H.E Second Company is known for its youth talent cultivation wing which sees young dancers undergo a stringent technique training program at the semi-professional level, and serves the Company's education and outreach arms. Emerging choreographers and dancers from the Second Company are spotlighted through its in-house annual showcase liTHE, and AFX,Asian Festivals Exchange platform as part of M1 CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival, and overseas tours with the principal company.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of T.H.E Second Company! As part of the decennial celebrations, T.H.E presents liTHE 2018: the 7th edition where we showcase young and vibrant performing talents from Singapore's flourishing contemporary dance scene. liTHE 2018 will feature three original creations by Anthea Seah, Goh Shou Yi, and Marcus Foo, three up-coming Singaporean choreographers performed by 16 dancers from T.H.E Second Company.

We are aiming to raise SGD5,000 through this campaign, which we could use enhance the welfare of the dancers and defray production expenses.

About the Charity

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 "hollow body" 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.
