Maum Momm (Mind – Body)
Creative Movement with Yong Min Cho – for vibrant health and increased energy

Every Tuesday and Thursday at 13.00. The last workshop will take place at Asia House on 12 June, 2014.
Free, all welcome, no booking required

The intention of the residency programme is to stimulate interest in interdisciplinary performance art, and bring together a range of practitioners to make new and collaborative works.
Yong Ming Cho will share his work in dance and movement through a series of workshops designed to promote a fit and harmoniously balanced body, and to bring out our potential through different movement techniques. “Our natural capacity for boosting self-confidence can be enhanced through my approach to body healing through simple yet effective movements” says the performer, who emphasises that the pop in session require no special clothing or equipment, just yourself and a few minutes of your time in the middle of the day.
Yong Min Cho will hold a final showing of his residency at Asia House on 13 June 2014, in a special collaborative venture with the Korean Dance Company, Pyung In, accompanied by the traditional Korean musical ensemble, Nol Eum Pan, both of which have flown in from South Korea especially for the performance. Entitled Bridging Colours – Whitel, the Ddnce and music performance is being put on in collaboration with the Cini Foundation, Venice, Italy. To book tickets and for more information click here.
