Performance Info


"Soul Piercing" is a piece that was selected through an open selection process and presented through the Korea National Contemporary Dance Company’s 2014 season program “History and Memory: Tradition Reinvented.” It also received an award for dancing and acting from the Korean Association of Dance Critics and Researchers. “Seoul Piercing” is based on observations of traditional funeral rites and the bewilderment and the contradictory attitudes seen in such ceremonies. The piece tackles the chaos of the living and dead that floats about the boundaries of death, and interprets it with a grotesquely exaggerated playfulness and imagination. Even within the uncontrollable confusion of death and the inadequacy of existence, there is a touching and desperate explanation hidden in the piece, which aims to peer at death with a hyper-positive gaze.



Production Details

Director
JI, Kyung-min
Goblin Party, which takes as its mascot the Korean goblin, or dokkaebi, a figure that bewitches people with its extraordinary talent and engages in impish and mischievous pranks, was founded in 2007. Goblin Party has been invited to Germany’s Internationale Tanzmesse, the Netherlands’ Spring Performing Arts Festival, Belgium’s dance biennale Pays de Danses, and other eminent festivals both in South Korea and overseas, and is not looking to stop any time soon. Using its unique humor and seriousness as weapons, the group emphasizes communication with the audience while consistently striving, through research and effort, to create pieces that might broaden viewers’ perceptions.
