Session I - Session II - Session III - Session IV

Lime Is The Sweet Name I Call

How does a choreographer refine personal aesthetics in order to define an artistic voice? This presentation shares a part of the larger, ongoing choreographic research on the notion of simplicity. An ephemeral yet tangible (re)presentation of simplicity in dance is the answer to be sought. By going beyond its common aesthetical and cultural understandings, simplicity serves as a powerful backbone during choreographic processes, allowing a choreographer to witness some of the richest moments a human body can create. At the same time, it challenges the dancers, both cerebrally and viscerally, to fully investigate their own uniqueness as dance artists. In this presentation, one of resultant dance work “Lime is the sweet name I call” is performed. An intricate yet pleasant mixture of individualities is rendered through simplicity.
