The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. (KCCDC) proudly presents the latest episode of OffStage: Ballet in Nature, the sensational series of cinematic outdoor dance performances launched in 2020, featuring principal dancer Ji Young Chae of the Boston Ballet in a new original work performed in and inspired by the serenity of nature.
A deep, lush forest serves as the stage for this original music, dance, and film work entitled Quiet Beauty. A dancer appears to emerge from, and the scene begins to play out as if the viewer were secretly observing the forest’s hidden motions and the secret dance of its majestic trees. Ballerina Ji Young Chae unleashes natural, graceful, and decisive movement as she engages with the environment, immersed in a quiet sea of nature. Through this brief but memorable performance, Chae offers viewers an opportunity to become centered, to heal, and to relax through a unique artistic depiction of oneness with nature.
This third episode of OffStage: Ballet in Nature releases on July 14 at 6:00 p.m. on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram via the KCCDC (@Koreaculturedc). For complete information, visit the KCCDC website at http://washingtondc.korean-culture.org.
