Eun-Me Ahn Choreographer

Dancing Middle-aged men

With the Festival d'automne à Paris


THE MEMORY OF GESTURES
THREE AMAZING PIECES FROM CHOREOGRAPHER EUN-ME AHN THAT CREATE A PORTRAIT OF KOREAN SOCIETY THROUGH DANCE, SUBTLY FOCUSING ON EACH STAGE OF LIFE.


Blending dance and imagery, bodies and collective memories, the performances by Eun-Me Ahn masterfully weave subtle  choreographed movements and everyday gestures. They reflect the lifestyles of a country, Korea, and its great changes.
Conceived as a compendium of epic stories for the 21st century, the Dancing Grandmothers, Dancing Middle-Aged Men and Dancing Teen Teen trilogy tell the story of several generations. These dance-portraits of a society are performed exclusively using the body, their history, and their culture. A recognised choreographer, the Korean artist subtly leans upon each stage of life, and upon feelings of existence. She collected testimonies from grandmothers and made them dance, and then she became interested in men reaching maturity, recalling their memories of practical movements from their childhood. Eun-Me Ahn is also devoted to the adolescents of today, with their codes, their attitudes and their passions. The ensemble creates a jubilant choreographic work that oscillates between tenderness and complexity, from virtuosity to humour.
