5100: Pentagon

*UK premiere
Sunday 4 June, 3pm
Royal Academy of Arts, Block Universe 2017

The choreographed movements for the UK premiere of 5100: Pentagon were inspired by collected
archival images relating to the Gwangju uprising on 18 May 1980, and are set to an adapted version
of the 1980s demonstration song, ‘A Song of May’. Each performance is constructed based on a webtutorial accessed by anonymous groups of participants with no restrictions on age, gender and art experience.
This project brings to light an unexplored period in history as an intensive moment,
performed repetitively yet differently by voluntary participants in every new iteration. 5100: Pentagon
is a project by Young In Hong in collaboration with choreographers Ann So-Hee Mannik Kristiansen
and Sarah Louise Kristiansen.
