The meaningful concert, titled “Dance and Landscape”, is presented by the Incheon Metropolitan Dance Theater (IMDT), one of Korea’s most representative traditional dance teams. The theater will present a traditional Korean dance.
IMDT’s “Dance and Landscape” is a performance choreographed to create an experience of leafing through the pages of various landscapes of traditional Korean dance, according to the organizers.
It showcases the aesthetics of Korean traditional dance and creative choreography, as well as live Korean classical music.
Ambassador to Estonia and Finland Cheon Joonho said that while contemporary Korean culture such as K-pop and K-drama is already well known to Estonians, by seizing this opportunity he hopes to share aspects more diverse cultures of Korea with the Estonian people.
The concert starts at 7 p.m. on Friday September 1 at the Alexela Concert Hall, Estonia pst 9, Tallinn, and tickets are available from Piletlevi here.
Korea established diplomatic relations with the three Baltic countries in 1991, and 2021 is the 30th anniversary of each of them.
One of the very first times the Estonian blue-black-white was sported publicly at a major international event after the Soviet occupation occurred a few years earlier, at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul.
The concert in Estonia is the largest ever to be held to commemorate the special occasion of the restoration of diplomatic relations between Korea and Estonia, organizers say, with more than 1,000 guests expected, including former President Arnold Rüütel, IT Minister Andres Sutt (Reform). and the Mayor of Tallinn Mihhail Kolvart (Center).
The embassy also hosted a Korean Film Festival, a retrospective of director Bong Joon-ho last month at the Estonian Film Museum, to mark the anniversary.
More than 500 people came to the festival to enjoy Bong’s renowned films, including Oscar winner “Parasite”.
