Chunhajeil Tal Gongjakso (The Greatest Masque) – 천하제일탈공작소

February 17, 2019, 4:00 pm

Chunhajeil Tal Gongjakso (The Greatest Masque) – 천하제일탈공작소

Solo mask dances from three famous regional traditions of the southeastern area of Korea (Gyeongsang Province) will be presented, accompanied by a full band of musicians. These dances encompass a wide range of expression, from humor and frailty to joyful exuberance. The program will also feature other traditional Korean dances, as well as an improvised group dance that explores new possibilities for traditional dance in modern times.

Founded in 2006, this ensemble of acclaimed artists is rooted in the traditional Korean mask dance-drama. They aim to share the aesthetics and quality of traditional Korean mask dances of different regions. The group also creates new work using traditional music, dance, and masks to express contemporary stories.
