Pulling from Dohee’s practice in Korean Shamanism and performative ritual, this workshop focuses on techniques that connect voice, body and spirit. Through breath and rhythm, we tune our body instrument and free our voices to explore sounds, songs, and movement. Explore sound through Dohee Lee’s expansive range of vocal techniques along with rhythms to create a mystical and universal language. This workshop expands participants’ vocabularies of feelings, energies, memories and stories, from current to past ancestry time, which merge together and create a new art.
(Artistic Director/performer) was born on Jeju Island in South Korea. She learned Korean dance, Korean percussion, and vocals rooted in Shamanism. Her art now focuses on integrating these traditional ritual forms with contemporary elements. Her recent awards, Doris Duke Impact Award, Creative Capital and Herb Alpert Award. Her works emphasize the mythical, experimental, ritualistic, theatrical, historical and healing aspects of music, dance and installation, sharing thoughts and ideas on vital issues such identity, politics, nature and spirituality.
The MFA degree in Theatre–Performance Making
is jointly offered by California Institute of Integral Studies (SF) and the University of Chichester (UK). Our core faculty is comprised of internationally recognized performance makers and scholars working across a wide variety of contemporary forms. We support emerging and professional artist/scholars who want to develop their work and artistic identity in the San Francisco Bay Area and internationally. We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2017.
