Yuni Hong Charpe “ENCORE” Open Rehearsal

  • Graphic:Tezzo Suzuki

  • Video Shooting in Takeno

  • Research video of Choi Seung-hee Repertory Dance 2020 (Dance: Yun Miyu, Video by Natsuka Kusano)


Artist based in France and Japan, Yuni Hong Charpe leads a research project on dance and texts regarding Choi Seung-hee (1911-1969), a dancer from Korea under Japanese rule. The complex identity of Choi, who was called “Dancer from the Peninsula” for her brilliant performances around the world from Japan, Korea to Europe and the United States, will be examined, in order to reflect on our identity of the present and to revisit the problem of “Zainichi” foreigners which became evident with the pandemic situation. The works are scheduled to be presented in Kyoto and France after the residency.

During this residency program, we held two workshops.
The first workshop was organized by Ad Mornings for those who have roots abroad in Toyooka.
The second was to reconsider about Korean dance and "what is Orient" with Yun Miyu who is a Zainichi-korean dancer in Japan. We also shot a video of Korean dance with her in Takeno area.

Following these workshops and video production, we will develop a lecture performance with Akihito Hirano who is a translator and performer, and will hold an open rehearsal.
Feel free to join us.
