Olivia Hyunsin Kim / Ddanddarakim:
Miss Yellow and Me - I wanna be a musical
Deutsch, Englisch und Koreanisch // German, Englisch and Korean

Olivia Hyunsin Kim delights in rubbing artistic genres and physical techniques the wrong way. Be it postmodern dance, aerobics, minimal art and hard rock, pop or high culture – this young choreographer is interested in the stereotypes and clichés caused by various forms of expression and the power imbalances that they perpetuate between Us and the Others. Kim’s special perspective takes its strength from being German-Korean. In her newest piece, she takes on one of the most popular genres: the musical. Inspired by Miss Saigon – one of the most successful shows on Broadway and one, which has simultaneously provoked numerous controversies on the representation of Asian women, she has created a musical talent show that is both grotesque and entertaining.

Olivia Hyunsin Kim graduated from the Master of Choreography and Performance at the Institute of Applied Theatre Studies Gießen and HfMDK Frankfurt with distinction. Together with other artists she collaborates as ddanddarakim. Recently, she has been exploring the theme of exotification of non-white, "other" bodies in the MeMe Series. she came, she saw, she said: meme (part 1) and MeMe - I see. Ah! (part 2) have been shown at Sophiensæle, Mousonturm Frankfurt, Museo Universitario del Chopo among other venues and selected as one of the best works in Hessia.
