Many types of dance on earth originated from “offerings.” What forms do “offerings” take in the current era, and how can we interpret their significance? The burnt offering in the Old Testament offers the scent from burning something, as opposed to presenting a sacrifice of animals or food. Similar to the scent from a burnt offering, human life builds its meaning by burning the time that is moving towards death. The choreographer of this piece found sublime beauty in such a life.
Adding the meaning of the burnt offering to the monotonous life of workers, a contemporary offering is presented on stage with the hope that their lives, being burned up through labor, will never be wasted away in vain.
Working with a range of collaborators regardless of genre, choreographer Hye-rim Jang explores the existential value of human in her work, aspiring to create 'dance that resonates with the soul.' Through the work that pulls out different internal stories via the vehicle of dance, she hopes to share the energy with her audience.
Her major works include <숨그네>(2014), <심연>(2016), <침묵>(2016) and <Mark 7:34>(2018). <심연> won Best Dance Performance Award from 한국평론가협회 in 2016 and Best Creation Award from 한국비평가협회 and was selected for 'PAMS Choice' of Performing Arts Market Seoul.
