The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. (KCCDC) proudly presents the latest episode of OffStage: Ballet in Nature, the hit series of cinematic outdoor dance performances launched in 2020, featuring principal dancers Ji Young Chae of the Boston Ballet in a new original work performed in and inspired by the serenity of nature.
A deep and lush forest serves as the performance "stage" for this original music, dance, and film work entitled Quiet Beauty. A dancer appears, seemingly part of a majestic tree, and the scene begins to play out as if the viewer were secretly observing the hidden movements of a tree as it dances alone in a quiet forest. Ballerina Ji Young Chae unleashes natural, beautiful, and decisive movement as she engages with the surrounding nature, immersed in a deep sea of green. Through this brief but memorable performance, Chae offers the audience an opportunity to heal and relax through a sense of oneness with nature.
This third episode of OffStage: Ballet in Nature releases on July 14 at 6:00 p.m. via YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram (@Koreaculturedc). For complete information, visit the KCCDC online at http://washingtondc.korean-culture.org.
