All this means that he represents an extraordinary fusion of styles, techniques and philosophies, that should come together in his exciting new project, Man to Monk, of which Part 1, Man has its world premiere at the Lilian Baylis studio this autumn.
To make it all even more interesting, the work is choreographed by Carlos Pons Guerra, a truly original and talented choreographer and Artistic Director of DeNada Dance Theatre.
In Man to Monk: Part 1, Man Khoo will be joined by dancer Victor Callens in a duet that attempts to subvert the classical pas de deux, while exploring the human impact of lust, possession and rejection. It’s inspired by concepts of Hindu and Sufi philosophy that echo Pons Guerra’s exploration of identity and gender fluidity.
Man to Monk is a four year, two-part project charting Khoo’s own performative experience and the crossover between Eastern and Western ideas and methods of creation.
