This presentation shares part of continuing research on simplicity and how a choreographer refines/defines her aesthetics and artistic voice. Believing one's culture, identity, and uniqueness become visible through dance work, artistic relationships between a choreographer and a dancer in the processes of dance making are examined. As we continuously influence each other in numerous ways, how can a choreographer benefit from this symbiosis to create dance work that speaks for itself? How does simplicity lend its hand for successful realizations of dance, both in choreography and performance, that truly brings out each participants uniqueness? The ultimate goal of this presentation is to pose a question that challenges common notions of culture and its representation in dance.
