“A richly textured and striking work.”

Dance Australia Magazine

Conceived by Jeremy Neideck and realised by an international team, Deluge: 물의 기억 is a new experimental dance project that is the result of a long-term, transcultural collaboration and dialogue between artists from Brisbane and Seoul.

제레미 나이덱이 잉태하고 한국과 호주의 공연예술가들에 의해 탄생된 Deluge: 물의 기억는, 약 4년여간의 다문화적 협업과 끈질긴 대화의 결실로, 브리즈번과 서울의 공연 예술가들이 공동 창작한 새롭고 실험적인 댄스 프로젝트입니다.

Plunged into the depths of a feverish dream, the audience bears witness to a cycle of rituals and meditations that conjure up ancient myths of waterlogged gods.

관객은 마치 온몸을 뜨겁게 달구는 신열로 인해 꿈의 세계로 빠져 들듯이, 오래 전 물에 잠긴 신들의 고대신화를 공연 자들의 명상과 제의적 몸짓의 순환을 통하여 목격하게 됩니다.

Subtle transformation, explosive choreography, and dynamic amplified vocalisation, combine to explore the deep sorrow and sublime ecstasy that are hallmarks of Korean culture, refracted through an Australian lens that evokes a paradoxical relationship with one of nature’s most destructive elements – from droughts to flooding plains.

미묘한 변신, 폭발적인 안무, 역동적으로 증폭되는 공연 자들의 발성은, 한국 문화 특유의 한(恨)과 신명의 탐구와 결합하여, 자연의 가장 파괴적인 요소 중 하나인‘물과 인간의 역설적 관계를 호주인의 시선으로 환기 시킵니다 – 가뭄으로 메마른 땅에서부터 홍수로 잠겨버린 평야에 이르기까지.
