Yipoon Chiem


B**** will be a re-claim of Her Style.
It is a work, a shared intimate moment that retraces the journey of women victims of violence towards individual and collective awareness. This work is a tribute … To bring to life the memory of dignity in this creation by using the same tools as these BEINGS of the past, as these WOMEN of today.
Her solo is to sweep away all the illusions that have pushed us to fight in the wrong direction. It is the story of the hell that a young woman undergoes, trapped by her anger and by her external image.


Belgian of Khmer origin, Yipoon Chiem draws her originality from the practice of martial arts such as Kung-fu and classical Khmer dance. By learning hip hop and break dance (1st Best Belgium Girl 2004), she creates her own style, a true fusion of several influences. But she has no limits in her fertile creativity, she sharpens her interpretation accuracy in both dance and music. Multi-disciplinary with a creative spirit, she doesn’t limit herself to dance, but she also collaborates with music.
