Dulsori primarily aims to rekindle the spirit of ancient Korean festivals on the modern stage. “We aim to break the barriers between the players and the audience in staging our performances,” says Kap-Hyun Moon, director of Dulsori. Dulsori believes in creating a sense of community and understands the existence and importance of communal values in every culture. Dulsori’s performances and interactive programmes attempt to build friendship and unity between the audience and performers, thereby creating a sense of harmony. Through the mesmerising rhythms of percussion and drums together with enchanting vocals and dynamic choreography, Dulsori’s passionate and colourful performances showcases the unique heritage and spirited origins of traditional Korean culture.

Ha Yong Bu is the Artistic Director of Dulsori and is one of Korea’s national treasures. His dance has captured the imagination of virtuoso artists of different traditions. Renowned dancer Pina Bausch, found Ha’s dance deeply moving. Arianne Mnouchkine, Director of Théâtre du Soleil who invited Ha Yong-bu to France as a guest lecturer and choreographer said his “movements are like “the currents of a river”. Ha Yong-bu’s movement is free and unfettered, like the wind and water, at once fusing and deconstructing time and space. His work is a seamless blend of tradition and modernity, pushing the physical body to its limits.
