Eun-Me Ahn is one of the most well-known and beloved contemporary dancers in the world. Ahn is known for her paradigm-shifting dance performances that reflect the reality of 21st century Korea and give voice to diverse groups across the generations. In particular, she creates her works with ordinary people who are marginalised in society. Ahn created Ahnsim Dance with visually impaired dancers and Daeshim Dance starring performers born with dwarfism. With her eccentric extroversion and provocative fashion she is not just an exception in her home country. She often works to create an extreme form of expression in her pieces, which convince - with their simplicity and strength - both audiences and critics.
