Where lies the boundary between the body and the machine? In an empty space, illuminated only with cold light, Geumhyung Jeong explores the potential of the human: the sensuality, power, and mutability of the body. In seven peculiar "duets" with mundane objects (ranging from household appliances to mannequins), Jeong bestows a bizarre and disconcerting life to the inanimate through an intense and risky interaction with her own body. Combining dance, pupperty, and a technical mastery of theatrical conventions, the result is a moving choreograpy of the body and mind, crossing the dividing line between the human and inhuman, hallucination and reality.
Internationally acclaimed, Geumhyung Jeong's performances are known for their fearlessness and Jeong's extraordinary physical skill. Premiering in Australia, 7 Ways is Jeong's original paean to the underexplored possibilities of the body.
7 Ways contains adult themes. Recommended for ages 16+. Latecomers will not be admitted. Duration of 60 minutes.
