Everyone knows Andy Warhol and his famous 15 minutes of fame, but are you familiar with Eun-Me Ahn and her 1’59 ? With this project, the iconic South Korean choreographer offers a group of amateurs, from all ages and all backgrounds, to create their own performance and shine for 1 minute and 59 seconds. 1’59 is the average attention span before zapping on an Internet video platform. Short when you have a lot to say, but enough to express deep feelings and share an pressing issue. The result is a surprise that acts as a magnifying glass: through a variety of themes (family, age, love, professional world, gender issues, racism, …) we see a microcosm of a fantastic reflection of society and the problems and joys that make it move.
