Dohee Lee: MU/Connector: Chilseong Saenamgut

Past event

About

MU/Connector: Chilseong Saenamgut is a new ritual theater shamanic experience where ancestral traditions are transmuted through dance, singing, drumming, and electronic soundscapes, with immersive video and stage design, and community participation. By transforming into nine goddesses from past, present, and future, Dohee Lee transports audiences on a mythological journey through ancestral legacies and indigenous resistance.

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