Grant Amount

MU/巫: 9 Goddesses is a 90-minute dance theater performance—a shamanic storytelling experience where ancestral traditions are transmuted through mesmerizing dance, singing, drumming, electronic soundscapes, and audience participation. 2018 Guggenheim fellow Dohee Lee transforms into nine goddesses from past, present, and future, leading audiences on a mythological adventure across continents, seas, indigenous resistance, and a woman’s earthly journey. Local engagement includes public workshops, academic offerings, and site-specific ritual performances leading up to the MU/巫: 9 Goddesses theater performances.

Estimated artist fee: $7,500-$15,000/performance; $15,000-$25,000/week
