Things that Remember 2015 - Creative Group NONI

Each object cherishes condensed stories about the memory of space. The audience will actively explore the space with the provided map to find the objects and hear or see their stories. As the train blows the horn at certain times, as the clock moves, as the giant machines go round and round, all the objects make their own sound or movement, bodies that appear when the objects make sound or movement draws upon memory of the present time instead of the past by connecting and expanding the space of scattered dots.

박박parkpark, led by artist PARK, Min-hee who has been working on rearranging traditional culture inside the contemporary context, explores voices where a certain locality remains, as in Korean traditional lyrical poems and music: Gagok, Gasa or Shijo. Its ongoing conclusions are presented in the performances. Investigating inside and out musical forms that contain voices, 박박parkpark’s performances are composed in a way that they can construct a form within which the audience, stage and actors/performers can all be interpreted.

No Longer Gagok: Room5↻ - 박박parkpar

The viewing of Room5↻ initiates introspection through the experience of Gagok.

No Longer Gagok: Room 5↻ is composed for a full sensory experience of ‘Gagok,’ Korean traditional lyric song, which was popular in the salons of the 18th century. Translating its musical structure into a spatial form (the position of each room), the performance is a one-person theatre working to resonate and work deep inside each listener. The position and texture of voice, heard from each room, highlights 박박parkpark’s interpretation of Gagok.
