‘Even Though We Didn’t Go Through It’
‘Even Though We Didn't Go Through It’ is an exhibition and a live performance designed by Thourayya Kreidieh and Jeehyeon Rosa Wang, as part of their MFA thesis project at the Interprofessional Studio of the Architectural Association, School of Architecture. The show intervenes on undocumented narratives in the South Korean and Lebanese history created by the fluctuating political conditions. As glorified moments have been captured in official documentation, a lot of other moments were left untraced. Through an immersive interactive experience of ‘Even Though We Didn't Go Through It’, the audience find themselves as witnesses of a collective reconstruction of neglected personal stories.

The performance tightens and unfurls around a live score inspired by the aural tradition of passing melodies down through generations. You are invited for a journey that breaks through the idea of tradition and looks for balance between the past, present and future, between individuality and collectivity. We are looking for an answer to the question: can we move forward while still holding on to cultural memories?
“On stage, three women pose a question about a relationship between individuality and community expressed through physical connections. Tender partnering and innovative lifts form the ebb and flow that show a strong feeling of being together, but at the same time a desire to move apart and go forward. “ www. seeingdance.com

First commissioned for the Footprint Dance Festival, 'Tag' was originally performed as a site-specific piece in the grounds of Roehampton University. Adapted for the stage, it came to Resolution 2017 as an extended piece that explores the physicality and diversity of the playground behaviours of childhood and this time look into its relashionship with our experiences as adults.
See the world once more through the eyes of a child. 'Tag' allows the dancers to be as competitive, creative and playful as we all were as children, and asks you what are you missing, what is that you reach for and who manipulates you?
“Tag is our second piece, and we are launched straight into frenetic action, consistent running to and fro and a youthful energy shared amongst the six dancers jumping and reaching. Light- hearted, we are treated to a few laughs here and there as they blow each other about, encroach on each other’s space and clamber from body to ground and back. “ theplace.org.uk

How often you look for attention? How easy and for how long you can get it?
The piece explores relations between woman and man. Daily competition and teasing will take place in every second of the piece. Dancers will gather all your attention, won't let you loose your focus and entertain you. Swiches between moods, actions and atmosphere is the material we play with.

‘Who, wants, what’
We present slightly ironic world built on games and interactions. The characters, much like us, try to figure out if it's better to stay in the comfort zone rather than let others influence them. Silliness only further distracts us from our undescribed needs, goals, and aims; ultimately getting us absolutely nowhere.
The work has been presented at Agenda Dance platform, Footprints Festival at Roehampton University and have been touring in Czech Republik and Slovakia.
