About This Artist

Kim Ip/Krimm is a choreographer and performer who uses her choreography to undermine the stereotypes and expectations of the performing womxns’ body as it relates to American Pop Culture. Her work critiques the mediated gaze of womxns’ bodies in media through physically exhausting dance and club culture aesthetic. She desires to create alternate experiences on stage that unhinge the viewer from what is comfortable by co-opting familiar imagery and utilizing subtle distortion. Kim Ip/Krimm has received residencies from Shawl-Anderson Dance Center, SafeHouse Arts, and now CounterPulse.
