“We might have been trying to create a performance for materialising something that does and does not exist.”
Marc Brew and Bora Kim share an interest in limitation, body, and time. For five weeks, the two artists shared a rehearsal space to discover new body languages, visual elements, and music, which are layered on top of each other in this new production. In 공·空·Zero: Restriction, Body and Time, they attempt to empty the space, time, and their bodies to the state of zero, starting from their most natural condition. Through such an attempt, the artists show that we are neither the same nor different: being the same and different do not always exist in a pair.
With the help of professional audio describers, 공·空·Zero: Restriction, Body and Time provides a description of the performance in audio. For visually impaired audiences, headsets will be provided.
