FEAST OF TRADITIONAL DANCE – SeoJung Dance Company

The Korean Culture Centre offers an array of performances, talks and events for anyone interested in Korean culture living in the UK.

This time we had the opportunity to witness beautiful traditional dance performances from South Korea! SeoJung Dance Company brought 7 dance acts to London. The director, Lee Mi-hee aims to pass on Korea’s traditional dance, but also modernise and popularise it. The performance included local dances from Jeolla-do and Gyeongsang-do as well as Central Korea.

A form of dance using a three-four gutgeori tempo that alternates between slow and a little faster movements. The finale of the dance also incorporated a small drum!

A memorable, gracious and emotion-filled dance expressing the lonely heart of a woman whose lover has left her. Subtly lyrical and very moving, this piece is from the first scene of the ‘Moon, The Thousand Visages’ performed at the Soul Performing Arts Festival.

 

HEOTEUN SALPULI DANCE performed by Lee Mi-hee

The original Salpuli dance is a dance for fortune, however this adapted version has been mixed with the Heoteun tempo that encompasses beauty, joy and excitement. Overall, a very apt final performance, leaving the audience feeling energised.
