Artistic Direction: Jungmin Seo
Liminality: The holy and religious moment experienced by humans in the space and behavior normally considered to be taboos. The subconscious utopia created by Jungmin Seo through Jeollado gut (Traditional shaman ritual of Jeolla Province, South Korea)! Jungmin Seo reinterprets what she discovered through local study of Jeollado gut continued to this day through her own perspectives and creates a new stage (space, world) separated from everyday lives, inviting the audience to the newly created stage. With the refreshing combination of 25-string gayageum, shaman song, and percussion, the topic melody of “subconscious utopia recognized by Jungmin Seo” is expanded. Finally, a utopia is presented through impromptu and repetition. 25-string Gayageum Jungmin Seo Vocal Yulhee Kim Percussion Byoungwook You Composition Jungmin Seo Co-composition Yulhee Kim, Byoungwook You Creative Production Hyeri Jung Sound Direction Steven.
