silver through the grass like nothing finds Princeton Arts Fellow yuniya edi kwon stretching her capacities as a solo performer, creating an immersive world of sound, welcome and unwelcome shadows, entangled gazes, and fluid voices, within which she journeys as both messenger and message. The piece is a ritual convergence of continuums, including embodied story-singing, experimental music-theater, and emergent movement. Connecting to the history of pearl relics (sari) and their keepers, as well as the true story of yuniya’s sudden, sibylline illnesses and their accompanying medical traumas, silver through the grass like nothing is an impressionistic, bardo-like meditation on sickness, grief, and the body’s incessant pull toward transformation. Created and performed by kwon with dramaturgical support from Du Yun, and lighting design by Maggie Heath, this is an early, in-process performance. The complete work will be premiered in March 2025 at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, New York. A post-show Q&A will be led by Assistant Professor of Music Nathalie Joachim.
