MOUNTAIN, TREE, CLOUD AND TIGER Ver.0
Jee-Ae Lim pays attentions to how the dance of Korea has settled beyond the geographical and cultural boundaries. Currently based in Germany, Lim works closely with the Korean dance group in Berlin, ‘The Kaya Dance Group,’ and is particularly concerned with the notion of diaspora and tradition. Lim will be performing with Kyong Soo Shin-Nolte and Ok-Hi Kim-Wehnes from the Kaya Dance Group the in Mountain, Tree, Cloud, and Tiger ver.0. The member of the Kaya Dance Group, which started as the West Berlin Nurses’ Committee, has dedicated themselves to Korean traditional dance for an extended period of time. They have reconstructed the Korean dance as something new and original, adjusting to the unfamiliar cultural context of Germany. Jee-Ae Lim, Kyong Soo Shin-Nolte and Ok-Hi Kim-Wehnes will bring up the discussions of ‘the figure of diaspora’ with notions of the past and present, in and out, tradition and the contemporary, all entangled together.
