Outside In: Yong Min Cho
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
Corner Shop | 230 Portobello Road, Notting Hill W11 1LU
7 – 15 May – 15:40
Body Language Artist Yong Min Cho will create an installation and movement pieces in a corner shop space as part of Outside In.
Each day an object from The Coronet Theatre will be chosen and placed in the corner space. Yong Min Cho will develop a movement piece by focussing and interacting with this object during a daily performance. The objects will stay in the corner shop space throughout the period resulting in an installation of the 9 objects on the final day of the festival.
