A piece for 3 dancers
AH-HI provides a choreographic and cinematographic performance wich combines dance, cinema and music live. At the same time as the performance, Komusin Company produces an artistic short-movie about the theme of AH-HI.
AH-HI meaning child in korean. In Asia, there is a saying that abdominal breathing is like the breath of a newborn. Over time, our bodies lose their awareness of this breathing and its rhythm. In this kind of progression, abdominal breathing can be considered a return to our original state. Without returning all the way to the deep abdominal breathing of the newborn, can we rediscover our childhood abdominal breathing?
Are the flexible respiratory movements of the child comparable to those of an adult? In dealing with their daily and professional environments, adults accumulate postures that are
not relaxed (such as sitting for long periods in front of a computer screen). This situation leads Eun-young Lee to wonder about the dialog we can establish with our bodies, despite the inconveniences of modern life. When touring in South Korea for the production ‘Han Gamjung Memory’, Eun-young Lee was initiated in a breathing discipline called Seokmun…
As a choreographer, Eun-young Lee has always been interested in “daily life”, and her artistic research is often inspired by our lives and the gestures we make every day. The meeting between her choreographic work and Seokmun provided material to expand her research on harmonious energy and the concepts of introversion and extroversion.
