Testing Testing

Work in Progress

Testing Testing is a dance theatre work that extracts fragments of text, song and sound bytes from recording sessions by famous artists. Actor/dancer Soomi Kim dissects and craftily assembles 4 pieces of recordings that explore conversations and the unplanned verbiage -- from the ridiculous to the profound moments and the space in between, during recordings by celebrity artists. These pieces discover and uncover the fine line of brilliance and absurdity that celebrities experience in their lives and artistic process. This work was developed through the 2014 Mabou Mines Artist in Residence program. The residency was led by Sharon Fogarty, Joanne Akalaitis and David Neumann.

Created by Soomi Kim

Co-choreographed and performed by Soomi Kim and Mark Taylor

Music recorded by Adam Rogers
