The performance explores how physical empathy works as a mutually subjective base that enables communication. The performers use sensory materials such as minute movements, breathing, and rhythm to cause sensory transitions and generate certain emotions. The audience participates in the feedback loop of physical empathy by directly responding to the performers or by perceiving the reaction and behaviour of other audience members.
In the last few years, the artist has been exploring the issues of sensation and emotion through the performance of ‘tears’. This work expands the existing awareness of the connection between physical sensation and emotion to the problem of shared senses with others.
Concept and choreography Hwang Soo-Hyun
Performers Kang Ho Jung, Park Yu Ra, Hwang Da Som
