This year, we are delighted to commence a new InKo-ARKO Choreography Residency at the Gati Dance Forum in New Delhi. Hyungjin Cho, an accomplished dancer/ choreographer from Korea, will be our first choreographer-in-residence at Gati from 19 January to 20 February 2015.
Hyung-jun Cho is an accomplished dancer/choreographer who is currently working with the
Korean National Contemporary Dance Company with a focus on site-specific performance; with
subject matter related with everyday life and with relationships between people.
Through the residency at Gati Dance Forum, Cho hopes to exchange ideas with dancers and artists
from India and in the process, to expand his understanding of a different culture and to deepen the possibility of intercultural communication through the medium of dance.
About Gati Dance ForumGati Dance Forum is a pioneering arts initiative that works in the field of contemporary dance. Founded in 2007, in New Delhi, in response to the glaring absence of opportunities and infrastructure for independent dance in India, Gati has consistently searched for avenues to create a sustainable environment for the development of contemporary dance practice in the country. Both conceived of and run by dance professionals, the Gati Dance Forum is a model path-breaking community initiative. It is committed to a vibrant engagement with contemporary dance through opportunities for reflection, interrogation and innovation. In a span of seven years, its activities have grown from a monthly workshop between like-minded dancers into a body of pioneering and innovative projects that attempt to address areas as diverse as pedagogy, creation, research, outreach and arts advocacy and policy.
