Break Out to Play Union Square Theatre logo
A scene from Break Out
The extreme dance comedy Break Out will make its New York premiere at the Union Square Theatre, September 18-October 12, with an official opening set for September 23. Jun-Beom Juen will direct.

Written and created by SevenSense Inc. (the creative team responsible for the recent Off Broadway show JUMP), the piece offers some of the world's most talented dancers performing jaw-dropping choreography in a live stage show that combines hip-hop, gymnastics, yoga, slapstick and more. The mostly nonverbal dance comedy tells the tale of a night-in-the-life of a group of desperate prisoners whose nightmare existence changes beyond belief when an ancient and sacred text mysteriously drops into the prison. This mysterious arrival inspires the inmates to plan a daring escape into the outside world, where they are able to enjoy a brief, and hilarious, moment of freedom.

The cast will include Dae-Hyeok Lim, Won-Jun Song, Jong-Wook Jeong, Chul-Hee Han, Yong-Nam Song, Jae-Hong Park, Seong-June Park, Ji-Hee Jang, Jin-Hee Kim, and Yoon-Hui Choi.

The design team will include Se-Jin Han (visual arts design), Tae-Young Kim (set design), Yun-Young Koo (lighting design), Yo-Chan Kim (sound design), Hee-Ju Kim (costume design), and Sang-Ku Kang and Wook-Hyun Lee (original music).
