For those who were unable to attend the triple bill at The Place in January as part of Resolution 2019, Y Dance have posted a full length video of their moving and slightly unsettling performance, which you can view below.
“넋(NEOK): SOUL” is about suffering the mental anguish caused by society, family and even themselves. This work shows the process of dealing with the social pressure and stress, which means the inner conflict between suicide and life, by bringing the Korean traditional ‘Neokduri’, with combining contemporary and Korean dance.
