With her new immersive performance and social investigation "Unspeakable Community", Grace Euna Kim presents a subversive exploration of anticipation and togetherness that puts expectations to the test. Accompanied by experimental actions in virtual and urban space, what unfolds is an unpredictable experiment in radical solidarity that turns the “theater” of the audience inside out and calls the fictions of reality into question.
The performance encounter addresses the failure of language in times of crisis, and how this produces the conditions for social conflict and oppression. At its root the work questions the potential of dissensus as a basis of radical solidarity. How can we create spaces of resistance and solidarity, without unintentionally producing new forms of exclusion? What would it mean to embody „solidarity in difference” through actions and not words? How can we use language against language?
With this in mind „Unspeakable Community” seeks to investigate the transgressive potential of immersive social choreography, to be a catalyst to collectively question, imagine, and test novel ways of being together.
