About T.H.E Dance Company
“At the top of its game” – Mayo Martin, TODAY
“Strong, articulate and unmistakably, Asian” – Tara Tan, The Straits Times
Founded in 2008 by our Artistic Director Kuik Swee Boon, The Human Expression (T.H.E) Dance Company is one of the most seminal contemporary dance companies in Singapore as well as in Southeast Asia. Our works attempt to expose different dimensions of the human condition that often go unnoticed in the environment. With our roots firmly planted in the local dance scene, we hope to continue bringing our style of dance to the rest of the world; one that is open, daring and synonymous with quality and sincerity. T.H.E Dance Company is supported by the National Arts Council under the Major Company Scheme for the period from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2020.
