Jeon misook Dance Company KR

Bow

Choreography: Jeon misook

Is bowing merely a gesture of welcome or is there a deeper meaning behind it? The Korean choreography Bow centres around a widespread gesture in Eastern culture, an act full of beauty showing politeness and respect. Bowing is also a reflection of hierarchy, as its angle depends on one's social position. In a performance of deconstruction, the dancers repeat the ritual ad nauseam, turning it into an onerous burden and thus questioning its raison d'ê​​tre – an outrageous thing to do in East Asia.
