You Are Okay! (2017)
This solo emerged from extensive research, interviewing Korean miners who had been living in the Rhine region for over 40 years. The piece combines the Korean song form Pansori with visceral, raw movement and vivid live illustrations, exploring the meaning of a displaced body in an alien society, the expression of self of a voice repressed.
