New Commission 2018

Choreographer, Eun-Me Ahn

Candoco is pleased to announce that together with the PyeongChang Cultural Olympiad and the British Council we have commissioned South-Korean choreographer Eun-Me Ahn to create a new piece with our dancers for the Winter Paralympics and UK/Korea 2017-18 season.

Often described as the “Pina Bausch of Seoul”, Eun-Me Ahn is a multi-award winning choreographer creating eccentric, provocative and joyful work that plays with the beauty of contrast between Korean tradition and Western influences. Her internationally acclaimed work has been presented at festival and venues worldwide, including Kampnagel, Festival Automne, Bozar, Edinburgh International Festival, Gessnerallee and Festival TransAmériques.

The finished piece will be premiering in Seoul on 17 March 2018, and will then be available for touring.
