Yeonji   dances   and   creates   dance   in   Switzerland,   Germany,   and   South   Korea.

Her   artwork   lays   on   instant   composition   and   on   the   interconnection   of   dance  ∙  poetry  ∙
dream.   She   doesn’t   create   something   new,   yet   listens   to   what   is   given   and   to   the   urgency.

All   projects   in   which   she   has   been   involved   had   particular   creative   processes   with  
improvisational / instant   composition   approaches.   Each   show   consciously   included   openness   to   the
  potential   of   each   day’s   changes.

Since   2018,   she’s   invited   to   Asia   Improvisation   Art   Exchange   (by   i-Dance   Korea),
  Performing   Art   Network   Asia
,   ONCE   Festival   FÜR   Improvisation   Freiburg   and   Autunnodanza.   Her   artistic   practice   and   staging   continue   with   Maya   M.   Carroll,   Rosalind   Crisp   and   her   dance   collective   nonstopillusion.
