Lee, Ji-eon has been based in Seoul where, within her genre of contemporary dance, she is one of the most innovative choreographers of her generation. (Critic: Kim, Chae-hyuen.) She has performed in New York, Argentina, China, Hawaii, Germany, Japan, Denmark, Estonia, Italy and Bosnia.
Lee, Ji-eon is now also based in Australia.

In improvised dance, Ms. Lee performs both solo and in collaboration with visual artists, contemporary and traditional musicians, and artists who use new technologies and robotics.

A recurring theme in her choreographed work is “reconnection with nature”; with the dynamics of change and flow; with human nature that is instinctual rather than determined by reason, logic and rigid techniques.

Her work has a heightened theatricality while being founded on simple and direct physical sensations and bodily vitality, the movements often inflected by the slow rhythm of traditional breathing techniques.

In Lee, Ji-eon’s work, theatrical metaphors of reconnection with nature are symbolic of hopes for the reconciliation of imbalances in our inner nature.
