Let Me Change Your Name
About the show //////////////////////////
Let me change your name
With this title, like an invitation, South-Korean Eun-Me Ahn questions identity and the place of individuals in our modern societies by playing with repetition and contratsts.
Between darkness and flashy lights, black and white and bright colors costumes, between shamanist ritual and fashion show, gravity and humor, the movement imposes itself, repetitive, sometimes hypnotic until transe.
In a frantic rythm, the nine performers – including Eun-Me Ahn herself – exchange costumes as they change skin, as they change gender. They dance until forgetting themselves in the movement to create together one unique body. They fade, blend into the group but yet, they are here with their personnality and they state it out loud and clear.
Maybe their name has changed along the way… Maybe not…
