A troupe of traditional Korean drummers, dancers and musicians mounts a performance—weaving ritual & theatre with dance & music, punctuated by plenty of drumming. On this occasion of our first indoor show in over two years, we have gathered works touching on themes of loss, nostalgia, and celebration.

Ensemble Jeng Yi kicks off the show with the much-talked-about ribbon hat dance, where they spin the Sangmo, a hat with a streamer—all while dancing and drumming!

Zither performer Joo Hyung Kim and dancer Soojung Kwon join the ensemble in this hour of music, dance, and spectacle.
