Grec 2015: Not I / Body Concerto / Rest

  • Dance

Time Out says

One of Asia's most alive and innovative modern dance scenes is back at the Grec with a programme that consists of three choreographies. 'Body Concerto', from Sungsoo Ahn Pick-up Group, is made up of six short pieces, each one paying tribute to images that have affected the choreographer in a positive way, transmitting happiness. Four dancers interpret the pieces, with a technique that's influenced by ballet and modern dance alike and which searches for the balance between yin and yang.

The SEA Company presents 'Rest', a piece that employs the organic and flexible movements of basketball to represent the desire for rest and the emptiness of relaxation. The work was created for two dancers by Lee Jae-young, a choreographer who, along with his company, doesn't flinch at connecting dance with the most diverse disciplines.

Finally, Noname Sosúa brings 'Not I' to the stage. The piece is a solo from choreographer and dancer Choi Young-hyun, who here incorporates the music of Arvo Pärt, a precursor of minimalism, to convert a Samuel Beckett monologue into dance. Music and dance express the psychological conflict and desperation that lead to the question 'Who am I?'
