Mami Kang is Korean-Japanese choreographer and dancer. In Kang’s choreographic works, she addresses the experimentation of dance concerning its materiality, sensorial technology and effects through poetic sensitivity. Kang often employs quasi-fictional figures to conjure both destabilized and transformative experiences and explore the notion of otherness.
This work thinks dance as an alternative non-dualistic ritual by addressing an imaginary force. It unites materiality and immateriality as a form of faith in the current oversaturated world. By using the body as a kinetic and technological tool, Transmission emanates synthetic sensations towards the surroundings. Through the creation of fluid, unnatural, and ambiguous tragic dreams, and by continuously dismantling and reconstructing her subjecthood and objecthood, the protagonist attempts to give a new life to ideas about the body.
