Jee-Ae Lim comes from a traditional Korean dance background, and has been working on the relationship between the notion of tradition and contemporary in dance. She completed her M.A. in choreography Solo/Dance/Authorship (SODA) at HZT/UdK in Berlin. She was a choreographer in residency at K3- Zentrum für Choreographie | Tanzplan Hamburg 2013/14, a visiting fellow at the Saison foundation in Tokyo 2014 and at Korea National Contemporary Dance Company (KNCDC) 2015. She was named for ‘White Hope’ with her work ‘New Monster’ in the yearbook 2014 of the magazine Tanz Berlin and one of ‘The next generation of young leading artists 2015’ from the magazine Gaeksuk in Korea. She was awarded ‘Less Movement’ at the ImPulsTanz 2013 as part of the 8 Tension. Her artistic interest is looking at the body as a moving archive, exploring her own response to the cultural tradition and the established dance history in relation to its accustomed conventions and stereotypes.
