WHO WE ARE
DREAM WALKER is an interdisciplinary creative artist group that creates new artistic experiences by bringing together emerging professionals from various nationalities and fields of practice. We believe the performing arts can create an extraordinary connection between artist and audience capable of making the world a better place. We dream a world where people, art, and technology are truly harmonized.
The group was originally formed by Jonghee Woo, the current representative/artistic director of DREAM WALKER, along with emerging artists from various fields of the Korean performance industry.

Today, the group has successfully presented shows both in Korea and in the United States over the past few years.

Performer / Composer
: Member of the band "Cabin'
Nick is a native to Southern California, who's varied musical and performative interests lead to explorations in both physical and sonic space. Nick's curiosity regarding experimentation with the passage of time, the occupation of space, and social-performance tropes is guided by a deep respect and acknowledgment of Black American music, other improvisational forums, social music, and reflections on grandeur in performance. His mix-matched musical experience yield performances where conventional lines have been selectively blurred and erased to offer new territory to explore, or at the very least, a unique frame through which to view familiar places.

On my Forty-Eighth year of life I realized two things. I am bot getting any younger and the path which lays before me is filled with colonoscopes and failed attempts to buy a motorbike in place of my declining Testosterone. The only thing I hold true is the mantra circulating through my mind.... Roll out of bed, Mr.Coffee's dead and the mornings looking bright. And your shrink ran off to Europe and didn't even write.And your husband wants to be a girl. Be glad there's one place in the world where everybody knows your name and they're always glad you came. You want to go where people know, people are the same. You want to be where everybody knows your name.... #thisisntbroadwaystopreadingbiosthatarefilledwithanexplanationofhowartsythesepeopleare also #thankyouforbeinghereitmeanseverything

Performer / Composer
: Member of the Band "Cabin"
Performer-Composer Ben Finley was raised on a music farm in Ontario, Canada and is now based in LA where he plays the bass, composes, and writes. He is interested in exploring improvisation and multi-stylistic compositional models for original ensembles. Ben is also interested in the lifetime pursuit of attuned bass playing which he explores in acoustic and electric environments through his primary instruments: the double bass and the electric bass tuned in 5ths and other alternate tunings with effects. For Ben, compositions and performances are an opportunity to create inclusive, peaceful and profound connections in public assemblies with the potential to transcend and synergize boundaries. Drawing from a wide reach of influences, perspectives and ways of music-making, Ben’s performer-composer practices feature disparate stylistic forms expressed through a variety of instrumentations and personalities.
