Playground is a dance piece made through a deep inquiry on kids' playing movements. I hope the piece guides you to your childhood memories and creates sympathy from you.

Hyoin Jun is currently a second-year MFA candidate in the Experimental Choreography program at the University of California, Riverside. He has been awarded the Dean's Distinguished Fellowship Award. Before coming to UCR, Jun received an MA in Physical Education and a BA in Dance from the Chung-Ang University (CAU), Korea. Jun has actively attended and won in international dance competitions, including Jury Award, Sibiu International Dance Competition, Rumania (2011); Bronze Medal, Novosibirsk International Dance Competition, Russia (2010); and Gold Medal, Berlin International Dance Competition TANZOLYMP, Germany (2010). Furthermore, Jun has performed on both international and local stages, such as the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Closing Ceremony on behalf of Korea National Contemporary Dance Company, at the Olympic Stadium, Sochi, Russia. He choreographed and performed B.C. (Before Christ) in Korea in 2015. He has teaching experience as a part time instructor at CAU.

Playground is presented by the University of California, Riverside, Department of Dance. Hyoin Jun created this work in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Master of Fine Arts degree in Experimental Choreography.
