THE Culture Arts Council of Korea (CACK), in its aim to introduce Korean traditional arts to the world and to strengthen cultural ties with various country, brings to the Philippines 12 of their Korean traditional dance performers headed by their president Choi Hung Gue.
CACK is to stage performances of Korean traditional music and dance for the opening celebration of the National Arts Month (NAM) today at the Rizal Park.
Prior to the opening, CACK graced the Ani ng Dangal Mall Tour on January 31 at the SM Mall of Asia where the Ani ng Dangal exhibit was unveiled. The group, together with the Halili Cruz Ballet Company, Hail Mary the Queen Children’s Choir and J Crisis, performed for the mall goers as part of the month-long celebration.
Spearheaded by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts’ (NCCA), 2015 National Arts Month celebration bears the theme “Highlighting local cultural genius to promote pride of place.”
Aside from being the primary government agency dedicated to the preservation, development and promotion of Philippine arts and culture, NCCA also opens avenues through which the Filipino people are able to share art with, get acquainted to and learn from the various local and global cultures.
As a non-profit national cultural arts organization aiming to advance Korean culture and arts and promote cultural and artistic interchange between Korea and the rest of the world, CACK engenders a cultural thrust through such performances for each country’s artistic empowerment.
Apart from their SM Mall of Asia performance and opening celebration of NAM, CACK will also showcase their traditional dance in Philippine national TV to promote the month-long event. They will be performing live in Good Morning Boss on February 3.
