The Korean Performing Arts Center proudly presents its 19th annual concert, "Enjoy a Great Peace” featuring two exceptional Korean performing artists, Je-Man Jung with the Byuksa Dance Company and Sue Yeon Park with Sounds of Korea. Je-Man Jung is a human cultural asset in Korea (Intangible Culture Heritage No.27, 'Seungmu' dance), and Sue Yeon Park is a New York-based Korean dance master and National Heritage Fellow at the National Endowment for the Arts. This show is a traditional music and dance presentation, which hopes to encourage a carefree state-of-mind where both country and people are relaxed and can achieve all the things they wish. Je-Man Jung will show two pieces of at his New York premiere, Taepyeongmu (great peace dance wishing peace for the country) and Hutton Salpuri (shaman ceremonial and improvisation dance) that expresses his unique and compelling dance ability with didimsae (footstep) finesse. Sue Yeon Park, with the Sounds of Korea performance troupe, will perform a Giwonmu dance. This dance is very elegant, sophisticated, and full of colorful, decorated costumes which hope to bring a feeling of peace. The group will then display a Seongjupuri performance, a prayer for the prosperity of safety of the house and a representation of the southern Korean folk song. Finally, the festival will finish up with a high-energy and colorful performance of the Ohgomu dance. Through this festival, we wish upon the audience that they will have hope, peace, and happiness in their life and country.
