SK Group, the second-largest conglomerate in South Korea, is proud to present Sejong Center’s One Dance during Korean Arts Week, part of Summer for the City at Lincoln Center.
Performed by 39 of Korea’s most skilled dancers from Seoul Metropolitan Dance Theatre, this contemporary reinterpretation of the ceremonial Korean traditional dance plays the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts for three performances only from July 20-22.
In today’s world where Korean culture, arts, and fashion continue to dominate daily headlines, One Dance simultaneously captures the grandeur of Korean tradition while bringing the best of its contemporary dance to the forefront. The show honors centuries of rich Korean tradition through modern reinterpretaions of royal Korean dance, music, fashion, and art.
Told in four distinct acts, the 70-minute modern reimagining of the treasured ancient ceremonial dance known as Jongmyo Jeryeak is set to a contemporary music soundtrack inspired by traditional Korean court music and features over three dozen of Korea’s finest dancers from Seoul Metropolitan Dance Theatre, From the powerful and vibrant sword dance set to pulsating drums to the weightlessness of flowing robes forming elegant tessellations in the “Chunengmu” ceremony, One Dance is a celebration of Korea’s growing global cultural influence, showcased through the very aesthetic motifs from its past that continue to influence contemporary Korean art today.
Tickets for One Dance, starting at $30, are available online or phone by calling 212.496.0600.
