Movements Grow From Art
In this half hour, we speak with multimedia shamanistic performer Dohee Lee, whose new work MAGO, explores the devastating history of Jeju Island, and honors the women of her grandmother's generation, a matriarchy of free divers who spent half their lives under water.We delve into the power of art to keep hope alive in tough times.
Inspired by a dream, Lee researched the Korean goddess Mago who she describes at the mother of humanity and created this artistic expression of her homeland and memories of her grandparents in 1947 after the Japanese occupation. She looks at the importance of the present's connection to the past.
Dohee Lee's World Premier performance of MAGO is at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, CA on November 14th and 15th at 8 PM
