Get a fun introduction to the origin and the purpose of Korean traditional masks. Make a mask frame and add wet paper to build up details. All materials provided; bring an apron if you can. Participants can leave their masks to dry and sign up for the following week to decorate their masks, or take the project home for drying.
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 bi-cultural 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.
