Yūgen is a Japanese term referring to the beauty of human suffering beyond that which can be described. Informed by the structural use of repetition, cycles and static harmony found in traditions of Indonesian gamelan and Japanese gagaku, this live musical performance explores concepts of “profound grace” through traditional Asian musical aesthetics and concepts of timelessness, stillness and being. Accompanied by a multichannel video installation documenting  vulnerability, ritual and loss within the social, urban and domestic spheres, at its core Yūgen, Profound Grace, is sensitive to its historical moment, its audience and its environment.
