Geumhyung Jeong (South Korea) is a choreographer and performance artist. In her work, she constantly negotiates the relationship between the human body and the things surrounding it. Through intense, risky interactions with her own body, she bestows a bizarre, disconcerting life upon plain, everyday objects. Geumhyung explores the potential of the body – its sensuality, power to change its surroundings, and ability to undergo transformations through the power of desire. Her projects combine dance and puppetry and bring attention to technical aspects of theatre.

Geumhyung studied Acting at Hoseo University in Asan, Korea, Dance and Performance at the Korean National University of Arts in Seoul, and Animation Film at the Korean Academy of Film Arts in Seoul. Her works have been presented by the New Museum, New York, Zürcher Theater Spektakel, Switzerland; Malta Festival, Poznań, Poland; Brigittines International Festival, Brussels; SPIEL ART Festival, Munich; ImpulsTanz Festival, Vienna; iDans Festival, Istanbul; Contemporary Art Museum of Ujazdowski, Warsaw; Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart, Germany; PACT Zollverein, Essen, Germany; and many others.
