Washington Ballet’s ‘Dracula’ looks beyond the blood to the tortured soul

Arirang : 동행-We Go Beyond the Crossroad

 

DNA PRESENTS STAGES NEW YORK PREMIERE BY KOREAN CHOREOGRAPHER SUNHWA CHUNG

Ko-Ryo Dance Theater Celebrates Ten Years With Performance Featuring Live Music, Including Traditional Korean Drumming

Showcasing its dedication to presenting and supporting the work of international artists, Dance New Amsterdam (DNA) invites Sunhwa Chung/Ko-Ryo  Dance Theater to join the DNA PRESENTS family, October 17-20. Arirang : 동행-We Go Beyond the Crossroad, choreographed and directed by Sunhwa Chung, blends traditional Korean dance with contemporary Western forms. The program features live music, composed and performed by Korean Traditional Drummer Vonggu Pak, with accompaniment by violinist Sarang West. The 90-minute performances begin at 7:30 p.m. each night with an additional matinee on October 20 at 3:00 p.m. Celebrating ten years, Ko-Ryo Dance Theater performs the New York premiere of the autobiographical work Arirang: 동행-We Go Beyond the Crossroad. The multi-disciplinary piece explores Chung’s attempt to remain close to her roots as she grew beyond her culture, embracing the customs and ideas of another. Chung created the eight-part piece in reflection of her departure from native Korea and her assimilation to the United States. Arirang, the title of the work, refers to arguably the most popular of all Korean folk songs. Guest violinist and collaborator Sarang West and drummer Vonggu Pak will perform the piece’s score live at each performance. Sunhwa’s work taps into the American immigrant’s process of self expression—offering both artists and audience members the opportunity to initiate deeper conversations regarding belonging, cultural integration and innovations.”
