Starkly repetitive and energetic, Nutcrusher looks at sexual objectification and power.

As a woman, performer and migrant, Sung Im Her is interested in how these three identities intersect, especially in relation to the slow but now dramatic arrival of the #metoo and #timesup in Korea. The trio Nutcrusher premiered at ARKO, Seoul in January 2019.

What I have observed so far in the process is a distinctive choreographic vision, matched with being open to new ideas and ways of working. It has been refreshing to to collaborate with an artist who is willing to take risks and experiment so freely, to work outside her immediate realm of experience. Philip Stanier (Dramaturg)
