Fusing precise movements with a captivating soundscape, critically acclaimed choreographer Jin Yeob Cha examines perceptions of beauty and femininity beyond societal norms and traditions.

Friday 24 and Saturday 25 June, 19:30.

Accompanied by a hypnotic soundscape created by Eun-yong Sim - an acclaimed musician with Korean avant-rock band Jambinai, six female dancers flit between precise, discreet, feminine poses and aggressive, erratic movements to embody all aspects of a woman.

Miin (미인) is a Korean word meaning ‘beautiful person’, but is more often used as a synonym for ‘beautiful woman’. This work challenges the meaning of 'beauty' and encourages women to embrace their bodies as they are without succumbing to unrealistic expectations.
MIIN: Body to Body won the 2017 best dance award of The Korean Association of Dance Critics and Researchers.
