Dynamic Korea: Song And Dance At Emory's Performing Arts Studio On September 26, 2010

The Chae Hyan Soon Dance Company brings their visually striking “Dynamic Korea: Dance & Song” to Emory University. Handed down from generation to generation, the arresting movements of “Dynamic Korea” reflect the essential rhythms of traditional Korean dance with 12 Korean music and dance numbers performed by 12 artists.

The exuberant “Taffy Peddler Dance” takes the audience on a journey through the bustling and cacophonous marketplaces of Korea, while the deeply symbolic performances of the “Lotus Dance” and “Monks Dance” explore inner stillness and peace through the country’s deep Buddhist roots.

From the gentle, gliding grace of the opening “chaech’onmu” (Choson Court Dance) to the thunderous drumming of the closing p’unggo, the dancers and musicians of the Chae Hyang Soon Dance Company are animated by the strength and energy of the Korean tradition.

Led by artistic director Chae Hyang Soon, the Chae Hyang Soon Dance Company has performed at the Asia Pacific Peach Foundation as well as at events such as the tenth anniversary festival of the Seoul Olympics, the 2002 World Cup, the opening and closing performances of the Winter Universiade and Korea’s presidential inauguration.

“Dynamic Korea: Dance & Song” will be performed at Emory’s Performing Arts Studio (1804 N. Decatur. Rd. Atlanta, 30322) on Sat. Sept. 26 at 4 p.m. This performance is free and open to the public, but registration is required. For more information or to register for tickets, call 404-727-6427, or visit www.realc.emory.edu/korean.
