Suddenly Dance Theatre presents A Suddenly Media Production
An international collaboration: Canada / South Korea
Created and Directed by David Ferguson
Choreography:Hoyeon Kim and Jungha Lim
Music by Miles Lowry
Suddenly Dance Theatre’s Artistic co-Director David Ferguson has captured a new dance-film called LUCKY MAYBE. In December 2020, despite the Covid-19 pandemic and his cast and crew in South Korea, the director worked remotely via the internet from Victoria, BC, Canada to create the work.
Suddenly Dance Theatre’s LUCKY MAYBE (Episode 1) was filmed entirely on location at Wauwoojungsa, a beautiful and sprawling temple in Yongin, South Korea. The two central characters named Horangi (Hoyeon Kim) and Gatchi (Jungha Lim) are inspired by Korean folklore and silent-film era comedy duos. Representing lost nature, old magic and luck, these out-of-time outsiders are out-of-sync in a pandemic world. Created and directed by David Ferguson, this dance film features a pulsing original soundtrack by Miles Lowry.
CAPSULE is a community-responsive platform hosted by the National Arts Centre Dance Department in close collaboration withF-O-R-M and Dumb Instrument Dance. 60 short films created by Canadian dance artists are available to experience from May 3 to August 31, 2021. LUCKYY MAYBE has been supported by: The Canada Council, The BC Arts Council, CRD Arts Development, Arts Council Korea, Dab Dance Project, Seoul Dance Centre, and Dance Victoria’s Chrystal Prize and Residency Program.
