Se-Rok Park is a Berlin-born Korean Performer/ Sound Artist/ Composer and Sound Researcher currently based in Tāmaki Makaurau AKL who came to Aotearoa in 2019 from Chile where she had resided and worked for eight years.
Received her MA in Acting from Central School, London after studies in classical singing (Berlin), Korean traditional singing (Seoul) and an apprenticeship in the Grotowski method.
She was co-director of the KIM Performance Platform in Berlin (2009-2012) and Latin America and co-directed the KiM Post School in Chile after having emigrated to Chile in 2012. Se-Rok has performed and composed original soundtracks for theatre- dance productions with tours mainly in Chile as well as Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil and Berlin in the past decade. Since her arrival to Aotearoa in 2019, initially in Kirikiriroa, she created two original soundtracks partly with live feed for dance productions at the Te Whare Wananga o Waikato and Hamilton Gardens and has collaborated as a sound artist in Indak Kanikani, a performance ritual for trans- indigenous, at Never Space, Kirikiriroa, 2020.
As a Tauiwi she resonates with Te Ao Māori principles connecting them with Asian and South American indigenous ways of knowledge and perception. Her current research on oro looks into the relationality between environment/ space, object and body/voice with its unfolding creations of pluriverse, and the shift of perceptions as its consequence.
