Monday 13 July 2015, 12:00 – 8:30pm

Join us to recreate a day in a temple with performances by award-winning Korean dancer Nayoung Kim, of the Tanztheater Wuppertal, Pina Bausch Company and Asia House’s former artist/choreographer in residence Yong Min Cho. Silence will give participants the oppportunity to take a break from everyday, drink tea and interact with the dancers, whilst exploring the interrelationship between meditation, silence and sound.
