"A sophisticated dance about body and space" - National Asian Culture Center

Cheok is the traditional Asian standard of measurement, meaning ‘span of the hand.’ Resisting the uniformity of society, this personal and individual measurement is the guiding principle of renowned Korean choreographer Ae-soon Ahn’s visually enticing reflection of the nature of precision. This work was commissioned by the National Asian Culture Center Foundation in Korea.

About Ae-soon Ahn

Ae-soon AHN offers clear and flexible movements, sophisticated rhythms, and brilliant use of space. Based on Korean traditions and her perspective on Eastern aesthetics, Ahn has been focusing on attempting diverse experiments and creations in contemporary dances.

Serving as the Art Director at Ae-soon AHN Dance Company, Arko Arts Theater, and Korea National Contemporary Dance Company, Ahn has been presenting experimental choreographs in Bulssang, AlreadyNotYet, and Zero One Dimension.
