Chaesong Kim is an interdisciplinary art maker and performer. Her interest in the interdisciplinary arts was fostered by training in theater directing, choreography, video making, and voice at Bates College, together with her experience at Trinity/La MaMa Performing Arts Program, Bearnstow's Young Artist Residency, and internship with Ping Chong and Company. Originally from Ilsan, South Korea, her intercultural background leads her to often pose the questions regarding the politics of identity, belonging, home, and personal versus universal in her works. Her training with Mas Darsono in voice for Gamelan, as well as with Jordan Benissan in West African music and dance, also fed her strong belief in and drive for intercultural awareness. Her works have been featured at La MaMa E.T.C. in NYC, Ping Chong and Company's DevisingHUB in NYC, Union Hall in Vienna, ME, Bates College in Lewiston, ME, and Trinity College in Hartford, CT. She has also had the honor of learning and performing the repertory works of Trisha Brown Dance Company and Marlies Yearby, the choreographer of RENT, as well as working with Arthur Kampela, Frank Carlberg, and Vanessa Justice in making new works.
