'A Silver Knife' is inspired by the traditional Korean ‘Eunjangdo’ knife, worn as a symbol of fidelity for women but also used to attack people or commit suicide. Beautifully orchestrated and full of fierceness, ‘A Silver Knife’ and its four female performers invites you to witness wild emotions coming to life from a hidden place.
