Choreographer and dancer Jungwoong Kim was born and raised in South Korea, where he studied traditional Korean dance and martial arts, and now resides in Philadelphia. His most recent choreographic works have been presented at the Asian American Theater Conference at Philadelphia's Asian Arts Initiative, the University of Richmond in Virginia, The Iron Factory, and Conwell Dance Theater. Kim was a member of the Korea, Japan, China Dance Exchange Project 2002, and Trust Dance Company. He has served as an instructor for contact improvisation at the Park Avenue Armory in New York, University of Richmond, Korea National University of the Arts, and Chonbuk National University, among others. With support from a 2015 Center grant, Kim will present salt soul, a multimedia dance theater work integrating his heritage in traditional Korean dance with Western dance, improvisation, music, and found sound.
