Choreographer/Director Miyoung’s note:

I have presented the original Contemporary Korean Fusion pieces inspired by Korean folktales.

Once again, I would love to talk about “One World” through the Korean Contemporary fusion dance piece since I deeply feel that is what we all need for especially in this pandemic.

To me, living in this one world together means ‘Love’.
And as we all know, Love is All you need.

Embracing our unique heritage,
while celebrating our common life journey.
Though we all come from different backgrounds,

We can come together to create a beautiful performance.

In my choreography,

I enjoy blending
Eastern to Western
Western to Eastern

To create a fusion of cultures
and a performance we can all connect to.

I am proud to present an original Contemporary Korean Fusion piece that once again draws from my Korean Heritage
and borrows from another Korean folktale.

The tragic love story of So-Hwa,
A Court Lady,
who’s unreturned love for the king,
left her waiting forever and dying Alone.

Her remains transformed into the imaginary Flower, the “Trumpet Creeper” Which to this day, still wait for the kings return.

This story is told by a diverse cast of extremely talented MiYoung Margolis Dance Collective dancers.
We hope you enjoy this piece.
