How to carry stones in us
av Kyuja Bae
"An artistic research project by Sky Dancers/Kyuja Bae in collaboration with various artists, produced by Claudia Lucacel and supported by Norwegian Arts Council. How harmoniously can we carry stones inside ourselves while we carry stones in our hands simultaneously? Here, the stones we carry symbolise intense feelings/emotions that are connected with our inner work. In contrast, the stones in our hands symbolise our external daily tasks and works. How can the intense emotions caused by trauma be approached and explored artistically and philosophically in dance practice?"
"Trauma is a psychic wound that hardens you psychologically that then interferes with your ability to grow and develop. It pains you and now you're acting out of pain. It induces fear and now you're acting out of fear. Trauma is not what happens to you, it's what happens inside you as a result of what happened to you."
