As the 3rd workshop of the year, Ji-Rip Kim (The Intangible Treasure #3) will teach Iksan Han Ryang Chum: Pung Ryu Yeo Jeong, which refers to Scholars Dance. It was very popular dance as it was one of the few repertoires mainly performed by men.
Han Ryang Chum
Han Ryang Chum originally had dramatic elements with satirical tones, but later evolved to a solo male dance that represents the noble intellectuals, Seonbi (virtuous scholars).
Through this program, the participants will be given a chance to learn Pung Ryu Yeo Jeong which roughly translates to a journey of wind and water, the dance portrays the beauty of living a life that goes beyond material wealth and fame. Ethereal moves of a free spirit take you to a place free from all worldly concerns and Ji-Rip Kim style stands out in a way that it makes the audience feel as if its them dancing through his body, creating a true sense of oneness with the audience.
This program will present a valuable opportunity both for the general public and emerging artists based in the U.S. to learn Korean traditional dance directly from a master, deepening their understanding upon Korean dance.
The workshop program is free, but on line or phone reservation has to be made prior to the event.
Iksan is a city in North Jeolla Province, (commonly transliterated as Jeollabuk-do) South Korea.
