Jija Sohn

Jija Sohn (1982, JP, KR) traded her applied linguistic studies (us) for a choreography training at the SNDO in Amsterdam. With the use of dance and movement she is looking for the common denominator between all ethnic-cultural differences of people. She is interested in the question of how cultural diversity can be transformed into a universal value. Form and emotion are purified till the public obtain a physical experience of the performance. In 2016 she won the Moving Forward trajectory which resulted in Geisha Miracle (Theaterkrant****), a production of Dansmakers Amsterdam.
