‘Sagunja’ is a term used to indicate the four gracious plants – plum, orchid, chrysanthemum, and bamboo – in traditional Korean paintings. Since the Joseon Dynasty, Koreans believed that these four plants portray the spirit of the revered scholars: Loyalty, Integrity, Nobility, and Strong Willpower. Flowing Dance over ‘Sagunja’ is the collaborated work of dance and Korean traditional paintings. It contains artistic qualities that transcend time and space through traditional arts. Therefore, the audience may feel that they are in an art gallery.
Admission is free, but RSVP is required.
