Dancing Middle-Aged Men
About the show ///////////////////////////
In this third and last part of the Dancing...trilogy,, Eun-Me Ahn focuses on another generation : the one of Korean men between 40 and 65 years old. Those who live as business owners, head of family and those who have senior position in companies. The represent the social entity that carries the responsibilities in a Korean society still largely structured around family. Their body, their movement are a testimony and an eye on modern Korea History. They also unveil the negative effects of the spectacular economic rebirth of a country devastated by war and that has become in only a few decades, one of the most dynamic in the world.
These men belong to a blessed generation that lived without experiencing great disasters. If some managed to acquire material comfort and can think of enjoying a peaceful retirement, many got stuck in modern times trap that catches bodies and minds.
Infernal rhythms, extreme pressure, overwork and mental exhaustion with alcoholism as a loop-hole, it is the uneasiness of these Middle-Aged Men Eun-Me Ahn gives us to see.
Yet, she transposes it with her joie de vivre, and dance, and this work becomes a party, a huge breath of fresh air.
