Swan Lake

About the Company

AHN Soo-young first started dancing as a street dancer, and debuted with Eve’s Choice in 2007. The next year in 2008, he presented his solo piece A Choice of a Man at the Singapore Esplanade Theater. With the highly praised Swan Lake at the Across HIP HOP program of SIDance 2011, his Company was designated to participate at the Korea Moves, which resulted in a landslide success with all seats selling out in all 13 performances at 4 countries of Denmark, Sweden, Germany and England.

Recently, the Company presented Time Travel 7080 at the HanPAC Rising Star stage, which used our very pop music to connect with what we call the Korean 7080 generation– those who’ve grown up during the 1970s and 1980s. The piece, time traveling to the 70s and 80s, features much character and a witty story, earning AHN the nickname of Charlie Chaplin of the Korean contemporary dance scene.

Distinct with his own colors through various collaboration works with experienced choreographers like CHUNG Yeun-soo, the rising artist is constantly invited overseas. He is now keeping himself busy with his dance PhD at Sejong University and choreography works, as well as working with his new Ahn Soo-Young Company, founded in 2013.

About the Piece

Swans, from what I remember from childhood, are symbols of grace. The regal beauty, slow yet firm gestures…But today’s society has taken away their homes, and abandoned them to await their death. What do these swans, at the brink of death, want? The opaque, smog-stricken skies, miles and miles of endless asphalt and skyscrapers… The lost, homeless swans pass through these gray cities of pain.

“Swan Lake,” a performance on today’s environmental issues, was first put onto stage at the 2011 SIDance Festival and won the Grand Prix at the Seoul International Choreography Festival. The choreographer merged and reconstructed Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake with poppin and groove of hip hop, power b-boying moves and contemporary movements.
