National Dance Company of Korea, Scent of Ink

Scent of Ink has been promoting to the world the elegant beauty and depth of Korean tradition, showing refined Korean traditional dance with contemporary qualities. In this leading repertory, Yun Sung-joo’s choreography keeps the depth of subtle movements along with art director Jung Ku-ho’s direction, who has incomparable minimal stylization. 

Themed around sagunja, the orchid, bamboo, chrysanthemum, and plum blossom, as well as the four seasons they each stand for, it leaves a strong resonance resembling the brushstrokes of blank ink on paper. This stage boasts beauty of space and motion and places the audience in another dimension of Korean traditional dance through strong yet relaxed movements of male dancers and the elegant motions of the female dancers. 

Compagnie ODD, Empty Space | Empty Time with Worlds Within by Raphael Weinroth-Browne

Empty Space | Empty Time is physically and spatially poetic, seamlessly connecting the music of internationally renowned Canadian cellist Raphael Weinroth-Browne’s Worlds Within with the exquisite choreography of Compagnie ODD Director, Yvonne Coutts. The emotional cycles moving through the music and dance offer a compelling visual and aural experience. Separate and together; one in the unified field.
