The Korean Cultural Centre in Warsaw is pleased to invite everyone to the presentation of Shining Light by the Kim MaeJa ChangMu Dance Company, which will take place on Tuesday, 11 April 2017 (7 pm) at the Studio Theatre (pl. Defilad 1). The group is directed by MaeJa Kim, choreographer and Chair of the Dance Department at the Ewha Womans University in Seoul, established in 1963 as the first higher education institution of its kind in Korea. The Kim MaeJa ChangMu Dance Company was founded in 1976 as an effort to recreate traditional Korean dance as present in the subsequent historical periods, and to establish new dance figures and sets capable of illustrating the modern world. Over the years, the company has initiated the transformation of Korean dance through uncommon choreographies combining stage movement with poetry and painting. Thus, Korean dance has been enriched by additional forms. So far, these new forms have been based on traditional dances, including shamanic, Buddhist, folk, and court dances.

 

About the piece:

Our journey illuminates the world through dance,

Solves all of the world?s mysteries,

Whenever light shines upon us,

Together

We surrender ourselves to rapture.
