[by Park Young-jun] Producer Angella(Eun-Jung) Kwon, who succeeded Nanta and Jump as world-class performances, and artistic director Jae-Hyun Woo, a principal dancer and permanent director of the National Dance Company, created this beautiful performance in which the splendid Korean culture can be enjoyed by people around the world.
"Karma", a word that roots from the Sanskrit language of India, means destiny, deeds, what goes around comes around.
The love between 'Karis' god of the sun and 'Aria' goddess of the moon; 'Hyun Moo' the northern god who due to his adoration of Aria and desire for power transforms into a god of greed after getting his hands on the red fruit; Azure Dragon, White Tiger, Vermillion Bird and the goddess of stars, who come together with Aria to stand up against Hyun Moo and bring order to the heavens; In Karma, besides all the dance and martial arts, the Four Gracious Plants demonstration which unfolds magically on stage adds emotions to the narrative beauty.
Korea's beautiful culture, which could not be witnessed anywhere around the world, is unraveled into a Multi Art Performance by presenting the perfect balance between the smooth water flow-like movements and the restrained martial arts, along with music that harmonizes Korean traditional music and Western music.
In the past 5 years 'Karma' has performed as the opening and closing performance at various festivals around the world, and has been recognized for its quality and popularity through awards such as 'This Year's Non Verbal Award' from the Korean Tourism Organization,
'Audience Favorite Performance' from Columbia and Mexico, 'Best Performance' from Tehran Festival and International Tourism Festival.
