Abstract: This development of a performer practice that integrates elements of traditional Korean dance technique and Western forms of physical theatre and contemporary dance is based on an approach to internal understanding and external execution. Central to the work is the concept of body energy, or Ki. This ancient Eastern term is translated into a contemporary practice that enables a performer to engage mental and physical training. Breath and the use of breath in performing are the principal means of achieving this level of engagement.
