The Korean tradition of buying and selling dreams is the starting point for this ethereal dance and video performance.
Bongsu Park is a Korean artist whose dance video works have won international acclaim. Recently, she has been collecting the dreams of all kinds of people as inspiration for this unique live performance.
For Dream Ritual, Bongsu joins forces with an innovator of contemporary dance in Korea, Jinyeob Cha. Together, you will embark on a beautiful journey through the stages of sleep, and deep into subconscious.
Alongside the performance, a selection of Bongsu Park’s video works will be exhibited in The Print Room, continuing her exploration of dreams, mythologies and the cycle of life.
“… omens [such as dreams] are not only portents of what may happen in the future, but [also] the destiny which is predicted by the omen may be transferred to another person. Thus, destiny is not specific to a person but can be given over to another through an appropriate ceremony…”
