Silver Knife is inspired by the silver knives that Korean widows had to wear historically, to attack someone or commit suicide to protect her chastity.
The dancers show various aspects of human beings on stage, not only dancing but also singing, rapping, using swear words and force or doing nothing.

The imaginary island Silver Knife on stage is where women are living, and their sharp repressed emotions are portrayed through movements. It shows the contradictory feelings of women who are bashful yet filled with anger, which tries to lead us beyond the idea of ‘women’into the emotions of those who need to keep concealing something in life.

 

Goblin Party, a Korean company founded in Seoul in 2007, is composed of a group of multifaceted artists, choreographers and dancers. Goblin Party focuses on producing shows that extend public viewing. Choreographers Jin ho Lim and Kyung min JI are part of the emerging new generation of contemporary Korean dance. Both have a degree in dance and a master’s degree in education at the University of Choongang. LIM Jin Ho received the award for the best choreography at the Seoul Dance Collection, SPAF in 2011 and JI Kyung-Min won the awards for his choreography at the CJ Young Festival in 2007. Silver Knife was invited to the European Dance Platform contemporary Aerowaves; ‘I go’, one of their most famous projects, has been touring in 10 European countries and at the Korean Cultural Center in Washington DC.
