Production Details / Press Releases
IN SPRING 2020 THE MUSICAL MISS YELLOW FINALLY HITS HAMBURG, GERMANY’S HEART FOR MUSICALS. Already before its premiere, Miss Yellow has attracted the public attention as the lovestory of the 21st century. The producers are busily searching for its female lead, she shall be sweet like a peach and as spicy as a dragon lady. The performance group Olivia Hyunsin Kim/ddanddarakim has taken this audition notice seriously and brought Miss Yellow and Me – I Wanna Be A Musical , a musical talent show into life. Asian stereotypes and exotifying clichés are being playfully satirized and at the same time explored as tools for self-empowerment.
OLIVIA HYUNSIN KIM graduated from the Master of Choreography and Performance at the Institute of Applied Theatre Studies Gießen and HfMDK Frankfurt with distinction. Together with other artists she collaborates as ddanddarakim. Recently, she has been exploring the theme of exotification of non-white, “other” bodies in the MeMe Series. she came, she saw, she said: meme (part 1) and MeMe – I see. Ah! (part 2) have been shown at Sophiensæle, Mousonturm Frankfurt, Museo Universitario del Chopo among other venues and selected as one of the best works in Hessia.
