Bridging Colours – White

Korean Dancers White 2

Dance and Music Performance

Bridging Colours – White

As part of his residency at Asia House, choreographer Yong Min Cho directs a special collaborative venture between South Korean professional dance troupe Pyung-In and traditional Korean musical ensemble, Nol Eum Pan. The artists flew in from South Korea this week especially for the event. The 50 minute performance will have an emphasis on the colour white, as this is one of the five most important colours in Korean tradition and life, which consists of white, black, red, blue and yellow. This is a rare opportunity to see a traditional Korean dance performance in London.

Yong Min Cho (UK/South Korea/Italy) Artistic director of A+M (Asia Movement), began his studies at the dance theatre school founded by Paolo Grassi, Piccolo Teatro in Milan. After training in Milan, he moved to Venice to join the Accademia Isola Danza, where he worked with American contemporary dance choreographer Carolyn Carlson. Since 2005, he has been living and working in London whilst touring in Italy and South Korea. A+M is a new platform for East-West cultural exchange to research and explore potential ideas that cross the rich and diverse traditions of Eastern Dance within a contemporary Western context.

The performance is being put on in collaboration with the Fondazione Giorgi Cini onlus, Venice, and Antiruggine, Italy.
