"Toward a Cosmopolitan Korean Dance"
Hyunju Lee Dance Company & Laban Movers/Hyuns Hong/Eddy Kim
“Dynamic Korean Dance toward Cosmopolitan” aims to ideal Korean dance of future for globalization. The performance seeks to break down the wall between the audience and the performer through dance movements embodying the spirits of movement within stillness through the mystery of the core which harmoniously handles the energy of the universe by the control of breathing, and through the communion with those experiencing the union of the body, mind, and spirit.
In this context, there is no seat and barrier of stage between audience and performer. It could be turned into a place for interaction with all people who are audience, staff and dancers.
This environment actively invites the audience to performing space and practically would share dancers’ expression. The program will consist of three major parts: Past with Korean traditional dance and New dance, Present with Korean Contemporary dance and Future with movement choir (improvisational dance). This order indicates a Journey through Our Dance History that to enable an exploration of the periodic developments of Korean Dance.
