INTERCHANGE 2015 – Geumhyung Jeong
Geumhyung Jeong (Korea) is a choreographer and performer. In her work she constantly negotiates the relationship between the human body and the things surrounding it. Through intense, risky interactions with her own body she bestows a bizarre, disconcerting life upon plain, everyday objects. Geumhyung explores the potential of the body – its sensuality, power to change its surroundings and ability to undergo transformations through the power of desire. Her projects combine dance and puppetry and bring attention to technical aspects of theatre.
