Dream Ritual - Bongsu Park + Jinyeob Cha - Dance and Performance at The Coronet Theatre

Dream Ritual

(This is a past event and is no longer running)

Created by
Bongsu Park + Jinyeob Cha

In association with
The Coronet Theatre

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. Bongsu's exquisite video art creates an ethereal setting for a beautifully choreographed physical 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.
