Filmed in the White Room at CRS, NYC
on February 6, 2022

Created in collaboration with musicians and dancers primarily of Asian and Middle-Eastern origin or descent, the WEDNESDAYS AT NOON music video series provides a playground for unusual collaborations and creative experimentation. The works featured include both composed/choreographed and improvised performances and take aim at the perceived boundary between traditional and contemporary.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Born and raised in South Korea, Jungwoong Kim has been a dancer, choreographer, media artist, arts educator and contact improvisation teacher for more than 20 years. He has extensive training in martial arts and Korean traditional dance and ritual, both of which strongly inform his artistic vision and aesthetic. He has done performances in contact improvisation and other dance styles with Katie Duck, Kurt Koegel, Hiekyoung Blanz, Kristie Simpson, Karen Nelson, Chris Aiken, Leah Stein, and Marion Ramirez, among others. As a resident artist at Philadelphia’s Asian Arts Initiative, he created and collaborated in a series of performance works dealing with catastrophic events and sudden human loss, including the 2014 Sewol Ferry disaster off the coast of South Korea. In connection with this body of work, in 2015 he was awarded a multi-year grant from The Pew Center for Arts and Heritage for SaltSoul, a multi-disciplinary, multi-site, durational performance project.

Jungwoong has taught improvisation and contact improvisation at numerous universities and independent workshops in the U.S., Europe, Japan and South Korea. For the fall 2021 semester he was a guest artist/choreographer at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster PA. He recently received a 2021 ART IS PHL award from the Philadelphia Housing Development Corporation for creation of Gather Together in Their Name, a public art project that speaks to the interruption of community memorial rituals in the time of COVID. Lately he has enjoyed working with Philadelphia’s Wilma Theater as the movement consultant for an uproariously physical interpretation of Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard, directed by Dmitry Krymov, which played to sold-out audiences and rave reviews in April/ May 2022. In June 2022 he was a featured artist in performances at the 25th anniversary celebration of Philadelphia Dance Projects.

Re-inventing new sonorities from ancient, somewhat restrictive, musical systems, gamin has received several cultural exchange program grants, including Artist-in-Residence (2014) at the Asian Cultural Council, and Ministry of Culture, Sports, Tourism of Republic of Korea (2012). gamin has collaborated in cross-cultural improvisation in NYC with world-acclaimed musician Jane Ira Bloom, Elliot Sharp, Ned Rothenberg, presenting premieres at Roulette Theater, New School, and Metropolitan Museum. gamin was featured artist at the Silkroad concert, Seoul, 2018, performing on-stage with Yo-Yo Ma. gamin, as soloist, has scheduled her Carnegie Hall debut with the Nangye Gugak Orchestra in coming year.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Galen Passen is a sitarist, composer, and visual artist based in Brooklyn, NYC. His devotion to training within the traditional formats of hindustani music have provided him with respect and love for the ever unfolding wisdom of sound while his diverse experiences across countries, genres, people and vocations have given him the conviction that art is to serve a greater purpose of spirituality and justice. Besides hindustani music he performs experimental compositions, collaborations with dance and other creative formats. He has had the privilege to work with the Pittsburgh Opera and Brooklyn Raga Massive and was awarded an Individual Artist Grant from The Saratoga Arts Council which he used to conceive and launch Folk Song, an emergent ensemble inspired by the forms of hindustani and Irish Trad.

Created in collaboration with musicians and dancers primarily of Asian and Middle-Eastern origin or descent, the WEDNESDAYS AT NOON music video series provides a playground for unusual collaborations and creative experimentation. The works featured include both composed/choreographed and improvised performances and take aim at the perceived boundary between traditional and contemporary.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Galen Passen is a sitarist, composer, and visual artist based in Brooklyn, NYC. His devotion to training within the traditional formats of hindustani music have provided him with respect and love for the ever unfolding wisdom of sound while his diverse experiences across countries, genres, people and vocations have given him the conviction that art is to serve a greater purpose of spirituality and justice. Besides hindustani music he performs experimental compositions, collaborations with dance and other creative formats. He has had the privilege to work with the Pittsburgh Opera and Brooklyn Raga Massive and was awarded an Individual Artist Grant from The Saratoga Arts Council which he used to conceive and launch Folk Song, an emergent ensemble inspired by the forms of hindustani and Irish Trad.
