For the first time outside of Asia, the Hong Kong Dance Company (HKDC) brings to the stage an inspiring re-telling of the household folktale of love, peace and virtue in a dance drama The Legend of Mulan. It will be performed at the David H. Koch Theater, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, March 5–8, 2015. The spectacular production is presented by the China Arts and Entertainment Group (CAEG), a creative enterprise under the administration of the Ministry of Culture of the People’s Republic of China.

Mulan is a legendary figure from ancient China who was originally presented in a Chinese poem known as the Ballad of Mulandating to the fifth century. Mulan, a peasant girl, disguised herself as a man to join the army in place of her aged father. She fought for a decade and gained much respect. She gave up a position at court and retired to her hometown instead. Traditional Chinese virtues are exemplified through the unusual adventures and touching story of Mulan, who shows extraordinary courage when it comes to protecting her country and family. A heroine with moral courage and intelligence, Mulan’s exceptional wisdom and vision transcend fame and fortune. Over time, the story of Mulan rose in popularity as a folktale and became widely taught in schools. It has also inspired a number of screen and stage adaptations, including the hit animated Disney movie released in 1998.

The Legend of Mulan received two Hong Kong Dance Awards in 2014 for Outstanding Production and Outstanding Ensemble Performance.

Performances of The Legend of Mulan by the Hong Kong Dance Company will be staged at the David H. Koch Theater, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Thursday, March 5 – Saturday, March 7 at 8pm and Sunday, March 8 at 1pm. Tickets are now on sale: $22, $37, $57, $77, $107, & premium seats $167 plus a $3 facility charge.  Tickets can be purchased at the box office and at (212) 496-0600; or by Fax at (212) 580-2545 and on the web http://davidhkochtheater.com/.

DJ Spooky’s Seoul Counterpoint
Friday – Sunday: 7:30pm

Seoul Counterpoint is an audio/visual anthropology, a breathing composition that juxtaposes the diverse landscapes, histories and sonic cultures of Seoul and New York. DJ Spooky’s unique style of “turntableism”, traditional Korean elements, and computer generated visuals by CultureHub collide in the New York premiere of the project developed during a two month residency at the Seoul Institute of the Arts.

Heavenly Code Free
April 12 / 12–4 PM

Heavenly Code is an interactive installation designed by CultureHub that is inspired by the Chun Bu Kyung. The Chun Bu Kyung is an ancient Korean text that dates back nine thousand years and can be interpreted as an exercise in mathematics, philosophy, or energy. The viewer becomes immersed in a pattern of light and darkness generated by their relationship to the 81-character system that seeks to make sense of the cosmos.
 

“As a world-renowned DJ, hip-hop savant, media artist, writer, and cultural critic, the work of Paul Miller, aka DJ Spooky is a process of discovery as much as it is an explosion of new forms…”
