Eun-Me Ahn {Seoul}


The eccentric South Korean choreographer Eun-Me Ahn lit up the 2014 festival with Dancing Grandmothers! She returns with her latest piece in a Belgian exclusive, building on the recent resumption of talks between the two
Koreas. Unable to visit North Korea, the artist collected dance videos available on the Internet and decoded, beyond the common roots, the evolution of an art that has suffered under a dictatorial regime. Extracting the essence of military
parades, fan dances, virility gestures, virtuoso acrobatics, traditional and folk dances, she reappropriates these codes through her joyful, ironic and popular art. The ten performers – of which she is one – alternate between minimalist paintings and colourful frescoes, between the finesse of the gayageum (a traditional Korean instrument) and the jubilant trance of electronic bass. Extravagance as a gesture of peace!
