About: Sage mir o Bruder mein Mensch wer bist du!?
...makelloses Sterngebild am Himmelswunsch der Ärmsten oben.
Krasser Feuer-Wunde kühler Balsam-Freund -
Zaubrisch süßer Tau auf Tiger wildes Dorn-Gestrüpp -
Mildes Jerusalem fanatischer Kreuzzüge -
Nie je verlöschende Hoffnung -
Nie trügerischer Kompaß. Gottes Zeichen -
Öl bitterer Zwiebel starrer Zweifel -
Du tropische Hafenstadt ausgewanderter, der verlorenen Söhne -
Keiner dir fremd,
Ein jeder dir nah und Schwester. "

My HomepageMy resumeMy portfolioMy public wallRSS
The human presence plays an important role for me, rather than sensual electric devices. Dance and cooking are my favorite activities.
Dance: I give spaces to emptiness in order to stress fullness. I confront my dance with distance and no-distance, time, with destroyed, used and forgotten objects and with gender. I examine the meanings of suffer, surviving and existence. My dance and art are inspired by Maya M. Carroll, Emmanuel Grivet, Lilo Stahl and Rosalind Crisp.
Cooking: I like to do everything by my own, may it be pasta, kimchi or Bärlauchpesto, and to avoid producing waste.

  • Mother tongue: Korean
  • I master the language English
  • I'm learning German

About:
My HomepageMy resumeMy music portfolioMy public wallRSS
I am passionate about social, relaxed and conscious living: Drinking tea, Chinese calligraphy, playing drums, cooking and direct social exchanges.
Music and dance: I have grown up in the countryside of Switzerland and Japan and was naturally exposed to the local musical culture of celebrating seasons. That's how I got interested in becoming part of these traditions and in learning the dances, drum rhythms and songs. Where ever I stay, I meet local artists to learn their traditional repertoire. At an early age, I learned to play the guitar from my mother. Later, I learned DJing, playing analogue synthesizers, the japanese drums and the jazz drumkit.
As an instrumentalist and performer who is specialized on improvisation, I am involved since 1999 in different musical projects which bring together elements like live music, rap, dance or live painting and which were brought to festivals and to the stage. Since 2016 I am teaching japanese drumming in Basel. My artist name is King Emir.
Music is for me a complex language used by human beings to communicate with each other. To create something in groups appeals to me because out of this arise moods, forms and elements which can arise only in this particular constellation.
Tea: Since I have grown up in Japan for a while when I was a kid, I was naturally exposed to drinking green tea and its culture. With my partner coming from Korea, I traveled to South Korea and met local people who are farmers, producers and sellers of Korean green tea at the same time. We learned about Korean green tea and brought preciously cared, harvested and produced green tea directly from them.
Profession: When working as a child educator, I realized that the accessibility and the quality of living spaces are predefined by planning processes. That's how I took the decision to switch to the profession of developping the space in order to create a sustainable future for everybody, together with the different stakeholders. Currently, I am working as a part time german language teacher at la bonne heure (see course description).
