Inspired by Korean migrants of the 1960s and 1970s, Jee-Ae Lim explores everyday practice in transmigrant societies. Individual memories meet cultural memory, ideas of mobility and globalization rub against those of home and tradition. By means of traditional and contemporary dances, four Korean professional and non-professional dancers explore how these opposites inscribe themselves into our bodies and fight for an universal body language of unity in multiplicity.
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.
