Ari Kim

Ari Kim (She/Her) is a lighting designer who originates from Seoul, South Korea, and is based in NYC. She has been working on Theatre art, Dance and performance art in museums. She is interested in stories that talk about boundaries and marginalized communities, including stories about queer people, women, and immigrants. 

She believes lighting design comes from the meanings of emotions and feelings which are non-verbal languages stimulated through human senses. These are the most essential, important and powerful languages in theatrical art. 

Recent work: Ma, go (Playwright Horizon Downtown), Yerma (Walker theatre, NYU), I’ve never planned to be on this earth long. (Lenfest Center for Arts), The middle land when time unfolds into a land.(Seoul, Arco art museum)
