Gee-Bul-Nori (쥐불놀이)

“Gee-Bul-Nori,” a Korean traditional 'fired-can rolling’ performance by Project Group C.  “Gee-Bul-Nori” is originally an ancient Korean tradition where farmers went out to the fields to burn them so they could wish for prosperity and health for the upcoming year. Project Group C reinterpreted and added modern digital technology to this tradition and performed around New York and welcomed the first full moon of the new year.
