KENNEDY THEATRE CELEBRATES THE CENTENNIAL OF KOREAN IMMIGRATION
TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
The University of Hawai‘i
at M?noa’s Department of Theatre and Dance presents “Dance
Korea” as its 2003 Annual Dance Concert. “Dance Korea!”
is a celebration of the centennial of Korean immigration to the
United States. “Dance Korea!” will be presented on the
Kennedy Theatre Mainstage February 14, 15, 21, and 22 at 8pm and
February 16 and 23 at 2pm.
“Dance Korea!” will feature the choreography of contemporary
Korean choreographer Jeong Ho Nam, one of the pre-eminent modern
dancers working in Asia today. Ten of her Korean dance students
from Korea National University of the Arts will join UHM dancers
in a performance of her work entitled “Wanderers.” The
concert will also include a world premiere piece choreographed by
Nam for UHM dancers, and a piece to be performed only by her Korean
students. The music for these dances will feature contemporary Korean
composers. The program will conclude with a rousing finale based
on traditional Korean drum dances choreographed by local Korean
dance expert Mary Jo Freshley.
This unique residency includes not only the performances at Kennedy
Theatre but also culminate with an intensive week-long student choreography
workshop after the performances. The workshop will conclude with
an informal showing of new works at Kapiolani Community College
on Saturday, March 1, 2003.

Council in New York; the Center for Korean Studies, the Honors Program
