"A revelatory personal style that pits a physical playfulness and humour against rigorous intelligence.” The Guardian 

Eun-Me Ahn is recognised as one of Asia’s most irreverent yet sophisticated dance makers

Let Me Change Your Name embodies the wit and choreographic complexity of her work, moving from deep solemnity through to nonchalant exhibitionism and psychedelic abandon. 

This is a surreal treat which plays with ideas of identify and androgyny.    

ABOUT THE ARTIST 

Moving from deep solemnity through to nonchalant exhibitionism and psychedelic abandon, nine dancers play with ideas of identity and androgyny helped by their interchangeable neon costumes.  This surreal treat is set to a score of natural and composed sounds by Young-Gyu Jang. 

Eun-Me Ahn was born and raised in Korea, and continued her training in New York.  In recent years she has enjoyed Europe-wide success including multiple invitations to her great friend Pina Bausch’s Wuppertal Festival.
