‘HOTPOT East Asia Dance Platform’ Korea

Discover performances by five groups of talents from South Korea, spanning a wide range of themes, from society, personal value, to tradition and modernity, while displaying the diversity of contemporary dance in South Korea through distinctive choreographic styles.

Choreographed by Choi Soyoung, Byeol Yang has been on tour at several dance festivals, as a minimalist duo performance exploring the relationship between the environment during the pandemic and the inertia of the human body. Shin Changho’s No Comment has also been performed in mainland China, Japan, the US, and Europe, with its powerful dance ensemble serving as a metaphor for how truth is suppressed by and strives to survive in reality. Choreographer Cho Inho’s In My Own Name is imbued with Korean flavours, as an introspection on personal identity through a fusion of physical movement and traditional music. Quotation Dance tackles the subject of creative ownership and its grey areas, through which choreographer Chung Da Soul creates movements and text to challenge the notion of a choreographer’s role and positioning in creative work. Meanwhile, Hauntology, a piece by Art Project BORA’s Artistic Director Kim Bora, features six dancers that return to the fundamental essence of dance in between reality and fantasy.
