Using Baekdu mountain range and Map of the Korean Peninsula Shaped like a Ferocious Tiger (槿域江山猛虎氣 象圖), Su:um, Dari is a 33 to 35-plate story of score and choreography where human organs and plates of different senses are located. Baekdu mountain range stands for the main artery and takes the shape of branches, roots or a snake. This piece’s overall story was composed based on the information of underground movements (location, direction, intensity) gathered for 15 days by the seismic triggers installed 100 m underground in Jeongseon, Gangwon-do Province. It consists of a 49-minute interdisciplinary performance, sound (including manpasik jeok ute), dance (salpuri), score and choreography-drawing, set design and design for two costumes. The underground information was collected by the seismic trigger when winter turns to spring (thawing sea- son): from February 3 to 18. Lee Junki, professor in seismology at Seoul National University provided assistance for this information.
