Abstract: '5100: Pentagon' was first shown at Gwangju Biennale 2014. The choreographed movements for the UK premiere of '5100: Pentagon' were inspired by collected archival images relating to the Gwangju uprising on 18 May 1980, and are set to an adapted version of the 1980s demonstration song, ‘A Song of May’. Each performance is constructed based on a web-tutorial accessed by anonymous groups of participants with no restrictions on age, gender and art experience. This project brings to light an unexplored period in history as an intensive moment, performed repetitively yet differently by voluntary participants in every new iteration. '5100: Pentagon' is a project by Young In Hong in collaboration with choreographers Ann So-Hee Mannik Kristiansen and Sarah Louise Kristiansen.
