About Howool Baek 

Choreographer Howool Baek has established her own choreographic language by discovering faceless body expressions through body fragments. And she proposes a different perspective on the body through the deconstruction and transformation of the body. By breaking stereotypes about the body, she wants the audience to have a new experience with the body and to look at society from a different perspective. Recently, she expanded the concept of the stage to the digital space and is experimenting with her own choreography method on the digital stage. howoolbaek.com
