SOOM (Korean for ‘breath’) is a newly formed company consisting of six dancers, all aged over fifty. Its founder, Yunkyung Song, is a professional dancer (Jasmin Vardimon company), choreographer and therapeutic teacher. Her work integrates the arts with the therapeutic process, much of it inspired by the physicality of older people. SOOM explores the dreams and unfinished business of its members. Their stories and life experiences provide the starting point, then as the tales of loss, longing and hope fuse with mythology and folklore, they become universal. Using visual metaphor, SOOM’s work uncovers our differing perceptions and the fragility of dreams, expressing Song’s awareness that ‘life is not always the fairytale that we dreamed it would be’. 

SOOM’s performers use dance and physical theatre to tell stories with an exciting difference.
