Director Biography – Hyelim Kim, Maria Koripas, Suki Mok (DANSANG – THE CITY)

As composer and taegŭm (Korean flute) soloist, Dr Hyelim Kim has been performing professionally since 2000 specialising in traditional repertoire and various cross-over genres. Kim has produced five solo recordings and performed numerous recitals around the world. Based on her belief that Korean heritage can act as an artistic inspiration for the contemporary and cosmopolitan environment, Kim has extended her new language of expression to the interdisciplinary sphere. ‘DanSang – the city’ is one of her recent efforts to incorporate sound and gestures of musicians as a tool to interact with spaces and surroundings.

As a researcher, Hyelim Kim is currently a research fellow at the Bath Spa University. She obtained her PhD in ethnomusicology from SOAS in 2014, where her dissertation was on the practice research of Korean traditional music, which is currently being prepared for publication. Most of her academic research and interests revolve around issues of intercultural and interdisciplinary music-making and practice research.
