South Korean choreographer Eun-Me Ahn wanted to explore the dance of the country also known as hermit country. Videos that show military parades and fans dancing, manhood gestures and virtuous stunts, the traditional dances are the impulse to explore the differences and similarities of this practice in North Korea and South Korea. In an attempt to shorten distances between two countries too close geographically, the desire that the Korean people of both sides of the border can relate through movement is mirrored. Between colour and movement explosions, North Korea Dance brings hope to create a common choreographic language.
