In 2010 Korean choreographer Eun-Me Ahn took some of her dancers and three cameras, travelling around the country. On their journey they filmed older women dancing. These were farmers, fishers, shop-owners, horticulturalists. These women are the backbone of Korea, and Ahn wanted to celebrate them. Dancing Grandmothers is a work which grew out of that initial tour and combines dance, film and movement in a celebration of that most overlooked demographic: the older woman.
