Body Drift [working title] | Mami Kang

Mami Kang Veem House ICK Amsterdam

Choreographer Mami Kang is currently working in our house on her new performance: Body Drift [working title]. She intends to create the composition of an anonymous figure with a tendency of morphing. With the creation of fragmented and fantastical narratives, voice, sound, and movements, the work imagines dance as something that transcends human exceptionalism and attempts to bring an altered spirit to it.

Experimenting with her subconscious mind and the force of desire, the work invites the audience to
participate in a cryptic, elusive thus charged space where fiction and reality, imagination and materiality intersect.

Curious? You can join Mami in her research during her Open Studio on the 6th of May!

Body Drift is a GREENHOUSE project, produced by Veem House for Performance in co-production with ICK Dans Amsterdam.

About Mami Kang

Mami Kang is a Korean-Japanese choreographer based in Amsterdam. She graduated from the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) in 2019.

In her choreographic works, Mami addresses the experimentation of dance concerning its materiality, sensorial technology, and affect through poetic sensitivity. She often employs quasi-fictional figures to evoke both destabilizing and transformative bodily experiences. Her works explore the notions of mythopoesis, otherness and contradiction.
