"Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. "
― Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
NUUM is a collective of artists committed to a multi-disciplinary approach to creating performance work.
We are choreographers, composers, programmers, visual artists and interaction designers who seek out the paradox inherent to working in one discipline through the lens of an adjacent form.
We choreograph stillness rather than movement because movement is felt rather than seen. We lay out rhythm and pitch in space so that we can more fully inhabit the dimension of time. We use the abstraction of words and geometries to put into sharp relief the specificity of the human form. We invite participation and choice so that we can craft a narrative that holds the audience in a tighter embrace. And we use technology to create space for what the human mind can do.
We are NiNi Dongnier, Tiri Kananuruk, Nuntinee Tansrisakul, Mimi Yin and Yuguang (YG) Zhang
