The second edition of the Asian Festivals Exchange sees young, talented choreographers and dancers from T.H.E Second Company embark on cross-cultural, new creation residencies with award-winning artists from the Seoul Dance Collection, Yokohama Dance Collection, and Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC) in Kuala Lumpur.

T.H.E Second Company’s Marcus Foo collaborates with Korea’s Jin Byoung Cheol to create a new work titled Absence, which contemplates the selective blindness afflicting increasingly affluent first-world societies – an obsession with trivial concerns perpetuated by mainstream media, in place of more pressing global issues. Absence makes its premiere at the Seoul Performing Arts Festival in October followed by M1 Contact Festival in December.
