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.
