Using humorous dance theatre award-winning choreographer Lyon Eun Kwon, draws on the male performer's personal experience and connects two connotations of glory ? the one known through serving your country verses the one obtained through avoiding military service by winning a competition. Riverrun - The first word from James Joyce's notoriously difficult avant-garde novel Finnegan's Wake provides the title for dance and choreographer Jin Yeob Cha's spectacular solo. Against a psychedelic backdrop created by visual artist Vakki, Jin Yeob Cha explores new function and meaning through dynamic movements in this multi-dimensional performance.
