Death. The very moment of silence.
Exploration on the inseparable relationship between life and death!
I Go (whose pronunciation in Korean is the sound of a refrain from the mourning tune in traditional Korean funeral) is a story about death that the choreographer Jin-ho Lim experienced while he worked at a funeral parlor for many years. Transforming the story about life and death, which cannot be adequately described by our words, into the language of dance, the performance presents Korea’s funeral customs including the process of letting the dead go and ways to accepting death and overcoming sorrow. I Go was premiered in 2011 when it won the award for excellent achievement at SPFA Seoul Dance Collection. It has since advanced into the global stages and after four years from the premiere, Korean audiences can have a chance to meet the show on the stage once again.
