‘101%’ wants to express through the dance the embodiment of
extreme passions and desires, represented by a vertical attraction towards
an unreachable point in the sky. In this sense, the dance is loosely
inspired by the Greek myth of Icarus, as he ascends
towards the burning sun.
This is a modernistic re-choreography of a performance by
Kim Young-hee. As one of my early works, this piece presents
my inner world in the form of a dance inspired by questioning a dancer
"Why do you dance?"
This may be a useless and meaningless question
in a way but then raises a question to me:
"Why do I dance?"
This piece considers how to accept the hurt
and embrace the future in this page of growing anxiety and selfishness.
Consisting of 3 parts, the show contemplates birth and death from
the perspective of a Buddhist term, Samsara,
which indicates the cyclicality of life.
Many short moments build a day.
"Without realizing" tried to describe instinctively
behaviors made unconsciously and the truth coming
from the bottom of one's heart.
I send a knowing gaze as my mind stands in silence.
"Mind Through Silence" embodies this very idea which has
its origins in a Buddhist anecdote involving
Buddha and his disciple.
Standing on the path,
Whilst all things in this world are in motion
I alone still remain hunched in the dark underground.
My own death in the reality -
Fate Describe the people who finally give in to fate
after wandering around between disbelief
and resistance to one's own death.
I make stop and look back.
I have come to a shadow of passing time in my recollection.
This dance work is based on the sprit of
Buddhist ceremonial dance.
