The children Charlotte and Felix emerge from the sea and play as their dead parents on the beach. It's a ritual the two have been practicing for years. In memory of their parents' wild exuberance, they put sunscreen on their backs and tickle each other until they can hardly breathe. For brief moments,all sadness falls away from them. Again and again, however, the different needs of the two ten- and eleven-year-old siblings break into the game.

TANZTAGE BERLIN 2014 Jee-Ae Lim New Monster

hp_tanztage_allgemein
2014 January 13 14 | 20.30
Festsaal
Suitable for Non-German Speakers

Watching New Monster is like unpacking a present without wanting to rip the paper. This piece by South-Korean Jee-Ae Lim spans the spectrum from a contemporary Berlin aesthetic to myth-inspired theatricality, with its overarching poetry only becoming apparent at the end.

Lim’s resume is equally multifaceted: she was trained in traditional Korean dance and went on to explore contemporary sensibilities in her Masters in Solo/Dance/Authorship at HZT. For 2013/14 she has a residency fellowship at the K3 Centre for Choreography in Hamburg.

„New Monster surveys the world by bringing human characters from Korean mythology such as a man, a fairy and a monster, in an attempt to put it into a modern landscape. It turns the characters into the performers from their own point of view in order to examine how the body is re-contextualized from the given role and the meaning from the society and how the body is rendered in the borders between collectivity/individuality, tradition/modernity, man/woman, human-being/animal.“ –Jee-Ae Lim

CHOREOGRAPHY Jee-Ae Lim PERFORMANCE Young-Ho Kwon, Soo-Hyun Hwang, Jee-Ae Lim MUSIC Tian Rotteveel, Kyan Bayani STAGE Jong-Seok Kim, Go-Ya Choi LIGHT DESIGN Jae-Euk Kim LIGHT DESIGN REALIZATION Nikola Pieper

Supported by Tanztage Berlin, SOPHIENSÆLE and Arts Council Korea.

Jee-Ae Lim completed her MA in Solo/Dance/Authorship (SODA) at HZT/UdK in Berlin. She is particularly interested in exploring the various possible meanings of traditional Korean dance through choreographic experiments. Tradition to her eyes is less about worshipping the phantoms and glories of the past but closer to a space of creation where questions as material of experiment arises. Her major works are New Monster, the trilogy 10 Years in 1 Minute and Your East, My Ghost. Jee-Ae Lim was named as the 'Hoffnungsträgerin' by tanz magazine, and as ‘Young Leading Artist’ by magazine Auditorium.
