How can life be changed or healed?
Local innovator Dohee Lee explores these questions in FLUX, a
a bold, beautiful new work about finding one’s way in life. “Flux”
means “continuous change or movement” like our daily lives which
change and flow endlessly. Embodying the presence of history, nature
and life as they are reflected through I-Ching (Book of Changes),
pursues the inspiration and lessons taught from Chinese philosophy
philosophy that delve into personal challenges of choice and action in
this ever-changing chaotic world.

The I-Ching has been influential in China for three thousand years.
For the Korean-born Lee, this ancient text is a map: a structurally
dazzling work that attempts to illuminate the order in life’s apparent
chaos. Borrowing from the book’s symbolic system, Lee maps out
the 64 symbolic hexagrams with light design, visual imagery, sound
and movement. The result is an evocative piece integrating traditonal
Korean performance, dance, experimental music, movement and film,
capturing elements that make poetic chaos emerge as beautiful
storytelling.

Our journey is flowing endlessly....boundlessly to reach our peaceful
Land.
