Dohee Lee

Performing Arts, 2013



Dohee Lee’s performance work draws on her training in the rituals of Korean traditional dance, music and shamanism—chanting, dancing, singing and percussion. Since her arrival in the U.S., Dohee has been a vital contributor to both the traditional and contemporary arts landscape of the Bay Area and beyond. She has performed and collaborated with Anna Halprin, Kronos Quartet, inkBoat, the Degenerate Art Ensemble, Amara Tabor-Smith, Sherwood Chen, Other Minds, ETHEL, Larry Ochs, Scott Amendola, Joan Jeanrenaud, Kust-Stoff, Francis Wong, Tatsu Aoki and many others. Dohee’s work focuses on integration of traditional forms and contemporary arts through music, movement, images, costumes and installations. She believes that by practicing art we can commune with spirits to express and share our thoughts and ideas on vital issues such as identity, politics, nature and spirituality.
