NAGOYA, Japan—After concluding two shows in Tokyo, Divine Performing Arts (DPA) International Company arrived in Nagoya, the world’s renowned city of the Toyota automobile industry, on Feb. 13 to be greeted by a large audience.
Korean dancer Sun-Ok Hwang, who is currently staying in Japan, saw the Nagoya show and was inspired by the experience. "I learned Korean dance, but DPA’s colors, the flow of programs, costumes, and music were very beautiful."
Ms. Hwang started learning Korean dance when she was nine and became a member of the Korean Dance Research Institute’s Asuka Dance Troupe. She is a proud student of the famous Korean folk dancer Hwi-Seon Gang.
She said she would tell her teacher in Osaka about the night’s “sensation” and will tell her not to miss the Osaka show on Feb. 18.
Mr. Nakatomi, who accompanied Ms. Hwang, said, “It is beyond my imagination; it was so touching.”
Among all the programs, Ms. Hwang liked Dance of the Snow-Capped Mountain and The Udumbara’s Bloom the most. She said that Dance of the Snow-Capped Mountain shows men’s masculinity, while The Udumbara’s Bloom shows women’s femininity.
