Performance Info

Korean traditional music and visual arts, from the perspective of contemporary art and culture
The title Li and Sa refers to Do-Li(reason) and Sa-Sang(phenomenon), which are two different but complementary approaches of Buddhist philosophy. Under the tradition of Buddhism, which is a religion of enlightenment to elucidate the truth, Li represents an intellectual way to find the purpose of consciousness, while Sa represents an affectionate way to have sympathy for everything. The latter tenderly embraces the former, thus achieving a harmony between subjectivity and objectivity. The dual principle is also applied to Buddhist rituals and musical practices. The Buddhist music project Li and Sa is an attempt to understand the philosophy embodied in Buddhist art, and to reinterpret traditional Buddhist music and dance from the perspective of contemporary art. The orchestration is mainly based on traditional Korean instruments and styles, including Gayageum, Haegum, Piri, Janggu, Buk, and Pansori. In addition to music and dance, a video work is projected on the stage, thus showing a contemporary reinterpretation of the imagery of Buddhist culture.
