Dance, Multi-media & Improvisation Research Week

Dance starts within body. Art originates from exploration.
We questions, experiment, discuss, analyses, attempt and record.
We invite you all to witness the research-in-progress…!

Days of movement research during which international artists explore the relationship between movements, own senses, and other individuals. Participants from different art forms inspire and provide new perspectives to one another. The Research Week will be documented by text and videos and will be archived as research materials.

Professionals can join the Research Week as either a participant or an observer. We welcome theatre, dance and other forms of performing arts practitioners. However with only limited quotas, we will allocate according to your intentions and the total number of applications.
Administration Fee: $400

All in a flash, improvisation sparks…!

Since 1998, Y-Space created a platform named as “Improvisation Land” for artists of different media to meet and have an improvisational jamming from time to time. In gathering artists around the world, and across the areas of dance, installation art, music, lighting design and visual art, artists would interact spontaneously, beyond the usual practice of choreographed performance. Being unpredictable could be risky, but could also be a surprise.

Three unique contemporary solo dances from Korea & Hong Kong, bring it on!

Middle
Choreographer & Performer: YANG Hao
Choreographer: Alice Rensy

Middle made its Premier at New Haven International Festival Arts & Ideas June 2016. In this work many references to Chinese culture of movements mingle with personal elements. Kung-Fu, Square Dance and contemporary life style has been transformed to the theatre scene as a post card to be presented in a poetic way.

Water Sound
Choreographer & Performer: Geunyoung KIM

I breathe.
I breathe from the deep inside of the body.
Silently feeling alive.
The sound of breath which soaks and flows.
The sound of every collision.
I sometimes slowly and quickly breathe and
that is how I make my own path.

Remain Invisible
Choreographer & Performer: KT YAU

Eyes are watching, and she withdraws into her shell.

The Root of Dance (Geunyoung KIM Open workshop)

Based on Korean tranditional dance, expanding your own body using line, space, pirsperation, and stream of the energy.
