The sound from a metronome produces the movement, which then creates another sound
This circular structure paints the cycle of the human nature that doesn’t progress

About performance

<Because of the Liver!> describes modern men who destroy themselves due to constant desire. And it overlaps with Dragon King in Korean old tale who tries to eat a rabbit’s liver to prolong his life. It is intended to portray the cycle of human nature that does not progress. This piece is composed of a chain reaction caused by the beats of a metronome. The beats make the dancers move, which then generates another sound. The sound created by the dancers, is in a circular structure that creates movement again. This way the metronome stands for the reincarnation of men, death and rules.

Synopsis

Indulged in his desire, he does not care about the life of others at all. He is voraciously satisfying his desire. Everything related to him begins to be destroyed because of his greed. The history built by him, his family and friends starts to vanish.

Choreographer
금배섭
Bae-sub Keum

Choreographer Bae-sub Keum was fascinated by dance while acting, and has taken his path in dance since 2007.
With his series of solos for Chumpan Yamoo, he is trying to tell the stories of those who are left lonely and helpless in this society. Each solo piece will complete a large painting of 'Korean society', just as assembling a quilt. Following the first solo, <Lunatic Seesaw>, the second <Island> and the third <Are You a Really Human?>, the fourth solo <Hug> will be produced in December this year. He is collaborating with artists in theatre, changgeuk(Korean traditional opera) and traditional performance art.

Chumpan Yamoo

Chumpan Yamoo was founded in 2009 by choreographer Bae-sub Keum and writer Poong-nyun Kim. Combined with modern dance, traditional performance art, installation art and theatrical sensibility, the company is working on the process of producing experimental and indefinite results in an interesting way, also with a focus on the relation between the self and others. Yamoo means 'dancing in the fields' - it aims to open up a type of dance that pays attention to everything, meets everyone and adapts to any space.
Major works include <Island>, <Are You a Really Human?>, <Lunatic Seesaw>, <Reborn>, <Zebracrossing> and <About Being Seen>.

Highlight video
  • “The metronome symbolizes passing/wheel of time and death – when the clothes were taken off it was as if the skin was coming off and I could imagine bugs or something more. It was very impressive to see the dancers making sound on their own.”
