Cutting Mushrooms

Kidows Kim’s practice is a crossover between writing and drawing. For  several years now, he has been adding to his dictionary of fan-tastical  creatures: a collection of monsters, memories and familiar situations.  The artist draws his conception of monstrosity – the cen-tral them of  his current work – from the transfiguration of reality and fiction.  Monsters are a metaphor for confronting reality, in particular questions  of hierarchy, domination, and standards. In line with this angle, the  solo Cutting Mushrooms explores a thwarted bodily  transformation, constantly reshaped by the violence of its hospital  surroundings. Via perpetual movement and the distortion of what is  normal for the body, voice, sound and language, the artist brings about  the emergence of a sort of inconstant monstrosity. Is engaging  transformation a way of existing? Of protecting oneself, communicating  or being included?  Is it an adaptation and/or a resistance? Giving body  to an ambiguous and elusive figure, Kidows Kim shows his current  transformation by going back over his past transformations.

Kim, Kidows

Born in South Korea, Kidows Kim graduated as a mime artist in 2015 and  then studied dance at the CNDC in Angers and the CCN in Montpellier from  2018 to 2020. His creations compose an intimate cosmogony as a  dictionary of fantastic creatures. He unveiled the first chapter in 2021  with the solo Funkenstein. He opened the second chapter, Cutting Mushrooms, in 2023. At the same time, he is working on specific and ephemeral performances based on an obsession with manga.

Centre national de la danse, Réalisation

Since 2001, the National Center for Dance (CND) has been making recordings of its shows and educational programming and has created resources from these filmed performances (interviews, danced conferences, meetings with artists, demonstrations, major lessons, symposia specialized, thematic arrangements, etc.).

Meeting with literature

Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
