ENCORE

 

(Project in progress)
The project consists of creating a lecture-performance on Choi Seung-hee, a Korean dancer from the Korean peninsula, in collaboration with a dancer from the Zainichi community (Korean residents in Japan) and a translator. At the same time, the artist will hold a workshop with foreign residents in Japan and then produce a video. The production process examines Choi’s complex identity, « re-enacts » history differently to rethink our contemporary identity and the problems of foreigners living in Japan as revealed by the pandemic.
