Dancing   Grandmothers

Eun-Me    Ahn

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

France had discovered Korean choreographer Eun-Me Ahn in 2013 with her pop epic of Princesse Bari. Leading artist of France - Korea year, she has turned European stages into giant dance floors with Dancing Grandmothers a no less crazy show, based on the indestructible energy of Korean grandmothers that join on stage the young dancers of her company.

A journey through time and movement that turns into collective trance.
A show of a communicative positive energy that makes feel good ! 

In 2010, without predefined route, the choreographer traveled the roads of Korea and asked elderly women to dance for her spontaneously. From these encounters, from the images filmed in the provinces and her dancers' reactions was born this show, alternatively tender and hallucinated, which takes the audience into the vortex of its contagious positive energy. A tribute to ancient times as much as the unfailing vitality of the movement.
