Pillow Debut

The outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage hosts DaEun Jung for a special one-night-only performance on August 23. This performance includes a “Choose What You Pay” ticketing option, with a suggested ticket price of $25.

Based in Los Angeles, choreographer/dancer DaEun Jung makes contemporary dance that is informed by ancestral dance practices of Korean classical and folk dance. In her Pillow debut, DaEun will perform NORRI, a group dance project inspired by the principle, form, and mode of Korean folk dance as a communal performance practice. In NORRI, meaning “play” in Korean, classical Korean dance vocabulary—originating from simple steps and gestures—is re-stylized by dancers of different cultural and movement backgrounds. Spontaneous Pansori (traditional Korean folk opera) phrases and continuous pulse of electronic sound guide or challenge dancers’ complex and playful pattern explorations.

The presentation of “NORRI” by DaEun Jung was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Foundation and the Mellon Foundation.
