Launched in 2019, the Asia Dance Community Choreo-Lab is a residency program designed to help choreographers expand their creative foundation by supporting their projects.

In 2020, the ACC selected four choreographers through an international call for applications.
This fall, the artists will showcase the outcomes of their research, mentoring, and collaborative projects during their three-month residency.
As before, I didn't do anything
Relationships, death, and disease. Last year, I had all these things happen to me roughly at the same time. Faced with overwhelming pain, I accepted them without any preparation. Or so I thought. Now, those instances of pain have been produced into emotions, transforming my existence into a scattering of fragments. Relationships, memories, looks, and expressions. All of them fell apart, which I had considered as a part of my everyday life. In fact, from then until now, I did nothing. I did not even try to express the pain, or put it into words. My time had stopped then and there. Now I will set the time in motion. From this point in time, I will rendezvous with the time that had stopped.

These recordings show different tracks of unexpected and overwhelming events that, by accident, took place at similar times, tracks that converge, yet stay separate, and sometimes overlap.

I’m focusing on you
Marcel Duchamp’s “inframince” roughly means fine differences between two objects. I’m focusing on you borrows this concept to talk about an invisible boundary, or a form of consciousness. It focuses on the “consciousness of ceremony,” the “act of focusing, paying extraordinary attention,” and the “will to communicate, pray.” It freely performs a ritualistic travel between the heard and the unheard, the known and the unknown, and the real and the unreal. Through that journey, by paying attention to those infinitesimal changes, this piece shows that boundaries exist not to separate a world from another, but to connect the two.

I might be wrong
Assuming that the transition from the act of “seeing” to (conscious or unconscious) recognition takes place through a multitude of choices, which of those choices are individually or collectively different? How are they different? And why? These are the questions that motivated this dance. I was able to narrow my questions through a preliminary online survey. I asked people about a wide range of things they see, hear, know, and take, and focused on where their answers naturally converge. Interestingly, those converging answers met with my theme of ten years, “the seen and the unseen,” which has led me to taking a choreographic approach where the order of “theme-choreography” is reversed. I objectify my own body and movements, and then search for themes based on the shared view of these objects.

I feel like I'm ready
Women depicted in the folk paintings of Shin Yunbok, a famous Korean painter in the late Joseon period, are the main characters and the heroines of romance. Shin did not try to hide anything as he painted their natural and pure expressions of desire. Despite the changes in social structure and perception, expressions about women’s desires imagined as a “paradise and fantasy” are only found in old paintings, and constitute a striking contrast against the suppression and restriction of women’s desire in the vertical order of the present day. This piece approaches the conflict and gap between the two by taking a choreographic approach that utilizes “women’s games” as a mass cultural code, and approaching the expression of women’s desires and the actual images.
