Movement Matters Master class: Exploring Attention/Space/Time with Jungwoong Kim

Movement Matters Master class: Exploring Attention/Space/Time with Jungwoong Kim

Mahaney Arts Center, Dance Theatre

In this workshop we will explore and develop our abilities to give attention to the energy in ourselves and the beings/environment around us. How can we receive energy and inspiration from slowing down, listening, and seeing new possibilities for feeling and expression?

Jungwoong Kim is a current collaborator with Middlebury College Dance Program’s Artist-in-Residence Tori Lawrence. Born and raised in South Korea, Jungwoong has been a dancer, choreographer, and designer for more than 20 years. He has extensive training in martial arts and Korean traditional dance and ritual, both of which strongly inform his artistic vision and aesthetic. He studied Deep Listening with Pauline Oliveros, and has done Contact Improvisation (CI) performance with Katie Duck, Kurt Koegel, Hiekyoung Blanz, Kristie Simpson, Karen Nelson, Chris Aiken, Germaine Ingram, Leah Stein, Marion Ramirez, among others. Since 2014 he has been an artist in residence at Asian Arts Initiative (AAI), a major arts and culture center based in Philadelphia. Through this residency he received a John S. and James L. Knight Foundation grant to support his performance works. He was awarded a 2015 multi-year grant from the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage for the creation of SaltSoul, a multi-disciplinary creative/performance project. Further, he was nominated for a 2017 Pew Fellowship in the Arts, and received a 2017 Bilateral Dance Artist Exchange Residency in Budapest, Hungary through Philadelphia Dance Projects. He has taught improvisation and CI at numerous universities and independent workshops in the U.S., Europe, Japan and South Korea
