  “Do You: Migration of the Monarchs” is part 3 of a performance art project incorporating avant-garde theater, interactive performance installation, and durational live ambient art. Parts 1 and 2 will be performed in two different locations and times as part of the One City One Pride Arts Festival.

  Inspired by the seasonal migration of Monarch butterflies in nature, “Do You: Migration of The Monarchs” is a journey to our “Promised Land”. Like one reggae song, “Promised land” is a state of mind. This means to me one’s higher self or true fulfillment in Life. It reflects my personal journey of migrating from South Korea to Los Angeles to find my voice and freedom as an LGBTQ identified artist. It is a story about a realization in one’s power dynamics through the transformations of the identity and how it can evoke the shift in others and society.

  “Do You: Migration of the Monarchs” takes the audience on a shamanistic journey through a series of sexually charged gender redefining performance vignettes. Burlesque and Cabaret merge with Victorian esthetics, Butoh, Kabuki, and ‘Pansori’ (traditional Korean singing) to create a cathartic act of experiential research into the psyche of the performer. Yozmit projects the internal act of healing through embodying beauty so that the audience may simultaneously experience inner peace and inspiration.

 Yozmit has performed internationally in Korea, France, United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Bulgaria and many cities in America. Yozmit is a headliner for The Box, NYC and London and also performed at MoMA for Marina Abramovic.

  *"Do You" means “Doing You”, “Realizing SELF”.
