Korea | AMPERSAND project events in Chuncheon

Mobile performance laboratory AMPERS&ND brings together leading innovators in music, dance and physical theatre from Australia, Korea and Europe. Workshop and presentation events at Chuncheon Arts Festival in Korea 6-8 November. AMPERS&ND is researching new modes of artistic communication between performer and musician and inviting us to think deeply about how we physically and sonically navigate daily life. The driving research elements behind AMPERS&ND are the transposition of traditional Korean dance and theatre as interpreted by Wuturi, a highly Western syncretic approach to instrumentalisation by members of contemporary music ensemble Elision and not yet it’s difficult’s performance methodology, body listening, which seek to discover how we can sense what we can neither see nor hear. The objective is to reveal the underlying mechanics of human mobility in public and private spaces, communicating an essential part of what it is to be human through a sensorial connection to performance. The AMPERS&ND project explores two streams: synthesising the body listening protocols into an inter-media training system and developing a new language wherein improvisation and composition can occur simultaneously and from the same creative impulse. In Chuncheon, we intend to complete a first draft of our new performance language by extending the vocabulary to include voice and percussion to sit beside wind, brass and strings. If so, we will experiment with some basic narrative structures to include in our presentation.
