About the show //////////////////////////
Eun-Me Ahn is a committed woman, an artist who doesn’t hesitate to tackle sensitive issues, even if it means breaking a few taboos on the way.
In Koshigi Monologue, she gives a chance to speak to old ladies who confide about their first sexual experience and the first years of their marital life in post-war South Korea. With reserve, sometimes mischief and often regrets, they tell about arranged marriage and social pressure. Their ingenuity and their ignorance. The violence they sometimes were the victims of and their resignation in the absence of a way out.
The choreographer put the recordings of these stories in the mouth of her nine dancers – male like female – who lend their bodies to question with strength, between dance and theater, women condition in our societies.
With them, we smile, we get outraged, we cry. We measure the progresses that have been made, but most importantly the long way that is still left to go.
