“Do You: Migration of the Monarchs” is a Victorian Kabuki Burlesque spectacle of sexually charged transcendence, to reunite the sacred feminine and the sacred masculine. Eastern techniques like Butoh, Kabuki, and ‘Pansori’ (traditional Korean singing) merge with Western cabaret aesthetics. The result is an emotionally engaging experience of bold visuals, dance movement, and enthralling music.
Inspired by the seasonal migration of Monarch butterflies in nature, “Do You: Migration of The Monarchs” reflects Yozmit’s personal journey of migrating from South Korea to Los Angeles, to find her voice and freedom as a trans-identified artist. It is a story of personal power dynamics through the various transformations of identity to encourage a shift in others and society.
Yozmit has performed internationally in Korea, France, United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Bulgaria and America including MoMA and The Box, NYC and London as a headliner. Yozmit was featured in the HBO Documentary “Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present” and was selected as Queen of the Life Ball Vienna in 2012.
