Susan Koper cultivates her craft and artistry through her work in many different areas of dance.

Susan received her MFA in Dance from Hollins University/ADF and currently mentors and guides young artists as a Professor of Dance at Ball State University.

She shares the space alone and reflects on past personal journeys of love in a moment where no one is watching while at the same time everyone is watching.

Body-Go-Round : round 1
collective A, an creative art group founded by Jinyeob Cha, choreographer and artistic director, focusing on going beyond the existing forms of performances, breaking barriers of limited space, genre and format by expanding its exploration of various artistic disciplines. Ultimately, collective A aims to challenge the meaning of interdisciplinary arts and its limitations, breaking the barriers of artistic dichotomies.
“Body-Go-Round” is a mixed reality (MR) performance where real existence and virtual existence that came out of the real one get blended together and interact with each other.
The piece created with haihm (electronic musician), Lee Byungyeob (architect) and Yunan Sam (creative technologist) to explore the art of today where technology has enabled limitless expressions, and experiment to find and expand new possibility.
