5:30pm Ganggangsullae by Dong Ji Collective:
Dong Ji Collective is a Korean diasporic artist collective made up of 7 artists based in the SF Bay Area– Youjin Han, Jane Kang, Danna Kim, Nahyun Kim, Heesoo Kwon, Julie Moon, and Sun Park. Ganggangsullae is an ancient Korean song and dance exclusively performed by women and traditionally performed under the full moon to bring about a bountiful harvest. The women would dance all night holding hands in a circle and play folk games. The Dong Ji Collective reinterprets this traditional dance into a ritual of their own that celebrates play and togetherness as a formative and healing gesture, honoring their empowerment as women and genderqueer artists.
6pm Samulnori by Kkiri Kkiri:
Kkiri Kkiri is a community group dedicated to learning, sharing, and celebrating Samulnori and other Korean traditions and culture, led by professional musician and amateur researcher Roger Kim. Samulnori is a performance practice based on traditional percussion music from farming communities in Korea. Roger has been studying traditional Korean music in South Korea and the United States since 2017.
7pm Wisdom Keepers performance by Dance Artists Sebastian Le, Liv Schaffer, Natalya Shoaf, and Dazaun Soleyn
