Avgang 2019: I dance You

Kyuja Bae explores spirituality in dance art in her master project in choreography.

I dance You

I dance You.

As the way,
how Sami people Joik someone, something or somewhere that they care for,
I dance You.

When I say,
I dance You,
it doesn't mean that I dance about You.

I dance You the way,
how I feel You
sense the energy between us.

I dance You,
as if I look in a mirror with the eye of my soul,
seeing me as you in my way,
seeing you as me in your way,
while I am aware of how things look like on surface through our sleeping gaze.

I dance You.

What happens, if we take dance art as a spiritual practice, treating the whole process and the performance as an imaginary ritual? The exploration of spirituality in dance art that is expressed in contemporary aesthetic, sets and uses, is the theme of this project.
