“From North Carolina to South Korea”, commissioned by UNC’s Art Department and Carolina Performing Arts, combines the multimedia performance art of Liz Magic Laser with the choreography of Wendy Osserman. Collaborating for the first time, the mother-daughter duo examines internet news surfing. This performance piece employs live video feeds with green screen effects, repurposing the techniques of news production and dissemination in order to present an embodied reception of the news. The event involved a live-stream conversation between an audience at Carolina Performing Arts Memorial Hall in North Carolina and an audience at the Nam June Paik Art Center in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea.
Technical Director: Irwin Seow
