Korean Cultural Center in HongKong collaborates with the Korean Foundation for International Cultural Exchange to hold a performance workshop on 3rd September 2018.
This workshop is about the aesthetics of conversation and co-creation. Taeyoon Choi will lecture on his art, teaching, activism practices, and lead participatory performance. The workshop will address following questions.
When we are in conflict, we avoid conversation by making statements. When we lose patience, we demand answers. When we are unhappy about ourselves, we shut our internal reflection. When we are hurt, we say harmful things that would be better kept private. Perhaps we never learned to talk together mindfully? Can we practice a different way to have a conversation to preserve our integrity and ethics? How can making art help us address these questions?
In this workshop, you are a compassionate messenger, crossing the borders of translation, violent displacement of words from meaning. You trespass gracefully, delivering the message iridescently. Some boundaries are meaningful, they preserve the spaces of care. In the commons, we meet ourselves. Talking with care, one step at a time. How can we talk together, among those who have nothing in common?
