Practice

My entire body, include facial expression and movement, voice, story telling, singing and body movements include gesture and all kind of movement could be used as a method to express and communicate with audience. My main interest is how can we extend the borderline of contemporary physical performance. I believe “Art shouldn’t exist to comfort the audience, it should challenge them”. My artistic practice is by using the most unpolished, unsophisticated but rough, bold and raw material, researching on the most minimalistic and highly implied, abstract movement to create illusion which could give a space to observer to create their own imagination. My main interest in creation is not generating more wasteful movement but using reduced movement and creates bigger impact by repeating over the safe time line. Repetition create it’s own rytheme and while it’s progressing moment by moment it will bring different way of inhabiting a passage. Repetition of movement creates its own momentum and vibrancy. And this could create amplication of vast energy and which can create another layer of illusion.

My aim is not making contemporary dance piece but making contemporary performance by using body as a tool. And as a tool, body is genderless and every body part should be used on the stage as different instruments to communicate.       

Recent workshop : Moving Cloud workshop

Brief description :

Class will focus on how we can move consciously and unconsciously. Class will start with shadow yoga base movements, which Sung-Im Her has been practicing for 8 years, then guide into various moves which aim to give awareness of body in space and space in our body.  
Throughout class, you can find unconscious ways of moving and try to discover this unknown zone.
