ALMATY. KAZINFORM - The State Republican Korean Theater of Musical Comedy and the artists of the Center for the Conservation of the spiritual heritage of the Republic of Korea are giving master classes. The artists have arrived in Almaty within the framework of a memorandum of cooperation signed in 2013 with the Korean theater of Kazakhstan.

Four teachers give master classes to the theater's troupe in two directions: "Dance with lions" and nongak - peasant music and dance. These dancing are complex forms of Korean traditional art listed in the List of Intangible Spiritual Heritage by UNESCO. "Our goal is to promote Korean culture abroad. Last year nongak was included in the UNESCO list of intangible spiritual heritage, and we decided to teach Kazakh artists this ancient and spectacular form of art," said the representative of the Centre for the Conservation of the spiritual heritage Yong Ji Hwan. Nongak is a form of Korean peasant music. Nongak dancing is usually conducted in an open area, accompanied by Korean drums in combination with complex choreographic and acrobatic elements. "Dance with lions" is a kind of Korean traditional festivities. By the way, last year, the center's specialists have already taught artists of the Korean theater this ancient art.
