CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) presents Crossing Boundaries 21: gamin x yuniya edi kwon: OO / LL / IM, an interdisciplinary ritual performance — a passageway through which grief, entanglements, and historical cycles might reverberate and be witnessed. As a duo, gamin and kwon will experiment with movement, ancient / contemporary sounds, improvised melody, literature, and space to create a ritualistic journey toward healing. gamin and edi enter the crossroads with different identities but similar interests. gamin was born in Korea and influenced by traditional culture while she practiced traditional music, but she has a strong bond with contemporary music, exploring ideas of openness and freedom. edi is Korean American, influenced by American culture while practicing violin in various contexts but also strongly connecting with Korean shamanic ritual through her unique and beautiful presence.
About Crossing Boundaries
CROSSING BOUNDARIES is a concert series devoted to dissolving boundaries between performers and audiences, the traditional and contemporary, classical and experimental, and the culturally specific and the global. Series curators are given the opportunity to create unique performance events in collaboration with musical, visual, and/or movement artists of their choosing. The series was conceived in 2018 by the Korean traditional wind player and composer gamin, who has continued to help curate the series each year.
Crossing Boundaries is produced by CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing). A Manhattan- and Tokyo-based organization founded by the Japanese writer Yasuko Kasaki and artist Christopher Pelham in 2004, CRS (Center for Remembering & Sharing) offers spiritual counseling, healing, and mind training and also develops and presents arts and cultural programming. The CRS mission is rooted in the non-dualistic teachings of A Course in Miracles (ACIM), which reminds us that we are limitless spiritual beings and encourages us to remember our true nature by committing to a practice of deep, non-judgmental inquiry.
CRS serves as a spiritual and creative laboratory, providing a diverse and international community of artists and healers across disciplines with opportunities to experiment and share their unique inner visions in order to illuminate what is true and universal.
Crossing Boundaries is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and administered by LMCC. LMCC empowers artists by providing them with networks, resources, and support, to create vibrant, sustainable communities in Manhattan and beyond.
