"About the project I plan to research and develop during this six months residency.
Recently I happened to ask myself a lot about “what makes me angry?”. I will soon go for a travel to a place I've always wanted to go. It is like a dream coming true.
It will be certainly a place of many joy, happiness and excitement but what I really wonder and am curious about is what will make me confused, disappointment me or make me angry. By this way I hope to encounter what I couldn't think about or expect." Kwon Ryung-Eun

Graduated from Hanyang University Dance department, master from Korean National University of Art in Choreography department. She debuted her career as a choreographer in 2008 presenting her piece Coco during the second edition of Seoul Dance Collection organized by the Seoul Performing Arts Festival.

In 2013, Ninano went for a project along the closest part of the demilitarized zone dividing South and North Korea (DMZ). During ten days they travelled by bike and performed everyday in the streets of the places they stopped by.
Kwon Ryung-Eun is actually in a one year residency in Hongeun Art Center where she's researching her own work and collaborates with other residents. In 2014 she won the French Ambassy Prize in Yokohama Dance Collection EX with the piece untitled The Skill for me.
