While Ming Poon comes from a dance background, he prefers to describe himself as a movement performer. Being a non-adherent to any specific dance aesthetics, he readily experiments and combines elements from an eclectic mix of techniques and disciplines.
The primary medium he works with is the body, which he has a predilection of viewing as an object, by stripping it to its physical and affective functionality and mechanics. His idea of dance is one in which there are no 'dancers' on stage, only bodies that are in the process of forming, transforming and disintegrating. He has worked in countries such as Italy, Germany, Spain, Belgium, The Netherlands and Singapore. His choreographic works include: 'The man who looks for signs', 'A piece of heaven', 'Ghosts', 'Back', 'Topography of Pleasure and Pain' (dance film). 'Gravity', '(un)it: HD85828|in.ViSiBLE' and 'The Infinitesimal Distance Between Two Bodies'.
