Uptown Nights Convent to Wythe: Bora Yoon ft. R. Luke DuBois at National Sawdust!

Aligned by a mission to foster artistic experimentation and champion voices that are reshaping the landscape of new music for this century, Harlem Stage and National Sawdust band together in a cross-borough collaboration to present yuniya edi kwon, SUN HAN GUILD, and Bora Yoon.

On February 16, 2023, Harlem Stage presents silver through the grass like nothing, a work in progress solo by yuniya edi kwon, and even in the shadow of a retching fog, a new work by the SUN HAN GUILD.

On March 9, 2024, National Sawdust presents (( ( PHONATION ) )) a work of sound and visuals by Bora Yoon and R. Luke DuBois.


( (( PHONATION )) ) is a multimedia performance by Bora Yoon with live video manipulations by R. Luke DuBois, exploring where sound connects to the subliminal using found sounds, new and antiquated instruments, electronic devices, and voice. Using a sound designer’s approach to performance composition that is steered by a penchant for a song, ( (( PHONATION )) ) engages with music as music, and not as part of a genre, taking the means to one end, and using it for another to form new utterances of sound and the beginnings of a new sonic language, within its spatial and architectural context. In every case, a particular sonic geography is evoked that might be inspired by a simple, found-sound in the world, or an expression of a sonic paradox bouncing around only in the mind.

This program is supported, in part, by, public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Additional support is provided by the Diana King Memorial Fund presented by the Charles and Lucille King Family Foundation.
