Explore the Korean Ganggangsullae group dance form. Participants will begin with a floor warmup, using deep breathing and the force of gravity, then proceed to simple step patterns. Learn about the history and practice the games, movements, and tactics of Ganggangsullae, using arm-weaving and call and response forms hand-in-hand with your neighbors. Wear clothes to move in and comfortable shoes.
DaEun Jung is a choreographer, dancer, drummer, and educator, originally from Seoul, South Korea. Her choreographic practice encompasses somatic and rhythmic exploration, improvisation, and an investigation into innovative dance-making methods. Rooted in classical Korean dance training from the age of 12, Jung considers her main assignment as a bicultural artist to redefine the forms and principles of culturally specific dance in a contemporary context. At the Camera, she will be developing an ‘Earthian Folk Dance,’ based on the concept of a group dance that reconciles folk, social, and virtuosic dance forms for all inhabitants of our planet. Her weekly events present opportunities to explore rhythm and movement, encourage kinesthetic excitement through participatory dance, and nurture communal and cultural awareness between neighbors.
