Garam Kim (Korea)


I want to keep my core values and philosophy in perspective with these values in mind, I wants to communicate and express myself through movement and dance.

I have been working as a choreographer and dancer since graduating Hansung university in 2011.

늘 수 많은 아이디어들 속에 잊혀져 가는 본질에 대한 중요성을 생각하려 한다.

해서, 몸과 마음의 모든 초점이 기본에서 시작하고, 기본으로 돌아가려는 것에 대한 이 자연스러움에 방향성을 갖으려 한다.

그리고 이를 토대로 움직임과 작품으로써 삶을 바라보며 듣고, 이야기하고자 한다.

2011년 한성대학교를 졸업 후 무용수 겸 안무가로써 꾸준히 작업해 오고 있다.
