Dragons


Are dragons feared in Europe? Young people in Asia are attached to their cultural background, which includes dragons. They symbolise lightness, joy and optimism, but wisdom as well. This all sets the tone for a captivating, burlesque and light-footed performance like a kaleidoscope of shapes, colours and rhythms in the extravagant style that is the trademark of the enfant terrible of Korean Dance, Eun-Me Ahn.
-|-
The dancers move through a criss-crossing of holographic projections in an animated setting. The dancers, who came of age in a world ruled by technology, at the same time carry on ancient cultural traditions, passing these down each in their own way. In Asia, Generation Z faces the future with a youthful energy that is truly inspiring!
