Hong Kong Dance Company proudly presents 𝓜𝔂𝓽𝓱 𝓸𝓯 𝓽𝓱𝓮 𝓓𝓪𝓷𝓬𝓲𝓷𝓰 𝓓𝓾𝓻𝓾𝓶𝓲 as the season opening programme of 2022/23 Dance Season.
Korean folk dances have a refined elegance that evokes images of a durumi (Korean crane) in flight.
Breathing out, the dancers effortlessly glide.
Breathing in, they pause with a subtle grace.
Their colourful traditional Korean costumes move in harmony with the distinctive rhythms of their folk tunes.
HKDC is bringing works of Seoul and Yanbian artists Dr Han Hyo-lim and Prof Jin Yinghua together in Hong Kong for the first time, to showcase the traditional charm and contemporary elegance inherent in Korean dance.

Mysterious rituals under the silvery moon
Korean Choreographer Dr Han Hyo-lim once again collaborates with the Hong Kong Dance Company. Back in 2018, Dr Han presented Furious Sea – Memory on Ube in Tale of Three Cities, a dance which commemorates the victims of the 1942 Chosei Coal Mine disaster. In the dance performance The Moon, Dr Han looks into Korean Shamanism and folklore to recreate the mysterious shamanistic rituals in dance.
