MUAK by Art Project Bora

  • MUAK is a piece inspired by music with the same name by the composer Isang Yun. According to Isang Yun, in Western music, the tunes are made up by the composer. But in Asian music, the tune already exists and it is the composer’s role to simply find the tune. The dance and music are all paces of breath.

    What is the true essence of dance and music? Refusing to be confined by logic and conceptual thinking, Bora Kim chooses to swim in the flow of senses.
