I passionately believe by practicing and performing art we can commune and heal with people and spirits to express and
share our thoughts and ideas on vital issues such as identity, politics, nature and spirituality.

The performance is the ritual; a new form of performance with Korean traditional and contemporary art. Whenever I
prepare for the performance, I always research and look around inner and outer what I and we need to pay attention to.
And it aways begins with myself with issues which are surrounded me then connect to the others in different forms like
physically, emotionally, mentally, socially, economically, politically, geographically and spiritually. This intention enhances
the connection between beings, nature, ancestors and spirits that we can cmmunicate and share the feelings, wishes and
hopes.

I am very lucky and honored to do art because art gives me the power of transformation to confront all these challenges,
facts and issues creatively through the new way of performance ritual.

Why ritual? In difficult times people have the tendency to congregate and find strength with each other and to free
themselves from fear and doubts by participating in collective ceremonies. Rituals are complex and bring together
different art forms into a cathartic experience. It carries the purpose of action and intention to form a link between the
human, nature and spiritual realms.

As a performer, connector and educator, I have committed my life and art to support and expand the connection with
people, nature and spirits. So we can fully aware of ourselves in different form of places and issues that we are confront
all time to transform.
