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 is 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.
