Choi x Kang Project
This work questions everything we think "we know." With that question, the artists themselves escape the body and the state of mind constantly flowing somewhere. Trying to wear various bodies is a process of struggling to go beyond the limits of a fixed identity and gain something new by discovering the subconscious and using a flexible body that can embrace acute sensitivity.Synopsis
Without beauty, without enlightenment, without attachment, it began with a simple question for the continuation that is nothing. “What does dance live on?”
”The universe is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.” - Eden Phillpotts
We relate to this, create context, and spread various rumors. Dance in itself borrows and senses all the power of the body, animals, objects, and the entire universe, and shakes and transforms the inside and outside of the essence. Dance and body is an inevitable agreement that constantly demands a new body to appear. And it hopes that a new body will come inside us in order to meet that demand. So, we decided to become shapeshifters, i.e being in a state of constant flow and change.
Choi x Kang Project is a group formed by Choi Min-sun and Kang Jin-an. It explores intuitive ways of creating movement and focuses on the process of connecting with the body through multidisciplinary experiments and external devices.

When the method of dance generated from the body, and the characteristics of different genres as media brought out in various ways of expression meet and clash, a gap is created. The group pays attention to this gap. In it, the group is looking for a method and a direction to deviate from the tradition. By presenting a new form of viewing, it pursues dance as a 'thinking body’ that can escape from looking at the predefined beauty.
