The Finest Group Choreography. A Crescendo of Elegance and Energy. The Essence of K-Arts. One Dance (Il-mu) has been described as “a wonderful blend of traditional and contemporary dance that reflects the times we live in.” It’s a modern interpretation of ceremonial dance from traditional Korean court music, Jongmyo Jeryeak, designated as “Intangible Cultural Heritage” by both the Korean government and UNESCO. A performance of “Il-mu,” originally played in a formation of several rows and columns of dancers, is recreated by Korean dance choreographer Hyejin Jung (Artistic Director of the SMDT) in collaboration with modern dance choreographers Sung Hoon Kim and Jae Duk Kim. A classic yet contemporary reinterpretation of ceremonial Korean traditional dance, the performance features a large formation and picturesque stage that creates a sense of grandeur, harmony, and balance. Ku-ho Jung, a Creative Director who has made a name for himself in fashion and the arts, offers his audience a compelling mise-en-scène that captures the essence of K-Arts in a feast for the eyes and the soul.
