Dohee Lee: MU/巫

“An homage to spirits that come alive in Lee’s hand gestures, costumes and leaps... It’s impossible to take
your eyes off her.” –

A creative visionary trained at the master level in music composition, singing, drumming and dance, Alpert Award winner Dohee Lee has developed an original multimedia iteration of ancient Korean shamanism. In her genre-defying solo piece MU/巫—meaning “shaman”—Lee uses wearable sensors and controllers to direct an immersive sound and video environment though her mesmerizing physical performance, which combines movement, chanting and percussion. “Shaman is the connector,” she says. “The thread of connection is myth. Myth connects us to our lands, nature, history, belief systems, and to each other.” Born on Jeju Island and now based in Oakland, Lee has presented her solo work at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and CounterPulse, and collaborated with Anna Halprin, Kronos Quartet and Degenerate Art Ensemble, among other artists.
