Daeshim    Dance

Eun-Me    Ahn

Création   2017

About   the   show ///////////////////////////

In her country, Eun-Me Ahn is considered as one of the most important artsist of the choreographic landscape. Some also see in her a shaman of modern times. 

In this new opus - the second of her trilogy about difference after Ahnsim Dance- she's chosen to work with people suffering from dwarfism to invoke "Daeshim" : literally, the "great spirit" that one can also translate by "great heart". 

A spirit that lies within each and everyone of us : this vital energy, this force that moves us and can make us overcome difficulties and move mountains, this breath of freedom that moves and transcend bodies, big or small. 

On stage, this invisible becomes tangible. In a sort of trance, the lines - omnipresent in the set and costumes - fade out little by little. Bodies, limbs and silhouettes extend, shrink. Dwarves become giants, giants become dwarves. The points of reference turn cloudy and drown in movement to finally 
What remains is performers, in all their generosity and energy. 

Because in the end, size doesn't matter, but what one really is deep inside, beneath appearances.
