The first image that was researched was an urban exodus. A city train packed with people who are leaving the city to go back to where they are from. I explored the feeling of insecurity and being caged from the negativity of the urbanisation. From this struggle, I develop a sensation of trust that leads to an educational relation, a self-reflection or discovery. As fear and skepticism slowly gets out of the way, a path of freedom, excitement and desire is opening for exploration.Playful yet precise, ‘’Manbuhsa’’ makes us think of an animal courtship, specially the one’s of birds.Observing animals in their seductive parades allowed me to associate their behavior with my piece in different layers. While the physicality of ‘Manbuhsa’ can remind us of cranes, the agitation and precision can make us think of the peacock spider.
Manbuhsa was created by imagining two kids playing in an asian rice field.Fueled by a fascination for foreign civilizations and inspired by the music’s rhythms, a relation is built between the dancers. Through movements, one invites the other to discover his natural instinct and vibrations that will guide them in their journey.
