Short Film: DANSANG – THE CITY, 10min., UK, Experimental

‘DanSang – the city’ is an exploration of new ways for music and movement to interact with surrounding spaces. Using the Korean bamboo flute taegŭm, native South Korean musician Hyelim Kim interacts with the landscape and soundscapes of urban London. The city becomes a multifaceted stage (‘dansang’ in Korean), which in turn transforms simultaneously into a nest and battlefield for a musician of ethnic minority background. Expressed through Kim’s music and movements, this film (with the music and sound recorded entirely live on-site, and with a fully live improvised score) explores how the non-Western female voice could express itself within the context of the cosmopolitan Western environment of the U.K., where it could easily be drowned.
