Description: THE KTPAA 18TH ANNUAL CONCERT 2012
"SPIRITS, NATURE AND HEAVEN"
Saturday, October 27, 2012 at 8:00PM
Symphony Space (2537 Broadway at 95th Street, New York, NY 10025)
Featuring Exceptional Korean Performing Artists,
NEA National Heritage Fellow Sue Yeon Park
Jang Jae Hyo & the Sonagi Project
The Korean Performing Arts Center (Korean Traditional Performing Arts Association) proudly presents its 18th annual concert, "Spirits, Nature and Heaven? featuring New York's two exceptional Korean performing artists, Sue Yeon Park (Korean dance master & national heritage fellow at the National Endowment for the Arts) and Jang Jae Hyo & the Sonagi Project (Korean traditional percussion ensemble). The main purpose of this annual concert is to showcase Korean art in its many forms and spread awareness of the art throughout NYC. The theme of this concert is based on shamanism and will focus on the important role of storytelling by religious specialists. While the performance of the Sounds of Korea is a much more traditional expression of the shamanistic world, the performance from Sonagi Project reinterprets this tradition. This concert will provide an opportunity for others to draw emotion and energy from and view Korean traditional music and dance, linking Korea?s values and past to the contemporary world stage.
The concert will begin with the performance of Minyo Medley (Gayageum Ensemble), featuring students from the KPAC workshops offered to Americans eager to learn about Korean culture. The group of Sounds of Korea will present Seungcheonmu, a dance of the spirit ascending to heaven. This dance is a sort of Ssitgim Gut or exorcism, a ceremony where shamans cleanse others from the negative of the dead and send them to paradise. Seungcheonmu, the dance, will be performed together with Gyeonggi Dodang Gut, music, by Sonagi Project. Finally, Sonagi Project will introduce new compositions based on Korean rhythms and chants. These new compositions will draw from the instrumental and vocal art of Pansori, including the artworks of Mun Gut, Doong Dang Gi Taryeong, and Pungmul.
