PU-LUEM YOUN «WOMEN ON THE ROAD».
It is a philosophical legend, where four dancers are the deferent incarnations of one character. The woman is passionately and thoughtfully looking for her own way, where the strength is in the weakness and the stillness is in the movement. The aesthetics is close to the greatest Pina Bausch: loose hair, highly-emotional choreography and deep philosophy behind it. Without a doubt a successful work that became the discovery of 2012 year in Seoul.
GOBLIN PARTY, «LANDING ERROR»
Actual performance about “the strangers” – people, who found themselves in the foreign country, culture, society. Outstanding choreography, boldly and ferociously declared subject is highly relevant, which means that audience all over the world can relate to it: be it Europe or Asia, Northern or Latin America.
