The Consulate of the Republic of Korea in Auckland is proud to bring (K-Wind Soul Beat) to you, Korean cultural performance by Noreum Machi, Gorilla Crew and Mira Dance Company travelling all the way from Korea.

This one-time-only Auckland performance will showcase vibrant and colourful traditional Korean music and dance infused with energetic hip-hop and contemporary movements. The show will take place at the Victory Convention Centre, Freemans Bay on Wednesday, 01 August from 7pm. It is suitable for all ages and the entry is free!

Noreum Machi, award-winning new wave music group is one of the most widely recognised Korean traditional music bands in Korea. Founded in 1993, it brings a mix of spectacular percussion, haunting shamanistic chants, and enchanting movement. The band artistically transforms traditional Korean music into something that is resoundingly contemporary.

Since the WOMEX official showcase selection in 2014, Noreum Machi continues carving out its own path globally. It has so far performed in almost 200 cities in 60 countries including New Zealand; 2016 Auckland Arts Festival, Brazil, Canada, France, Saudi Arabia, the Philippines, Australia and many more.

Gorilla Crew will also join the show. This is Korea’s the oldest and most renowned performing arts group specialising in street dances. It has a strong global reputation in Hip-hop, Popping, B-boying, House and many more Korean street dance styles. For this Auckland show, the six B-boys will present their masterpiece B-alive that won the hearts of Broadway.

On the other hand, you will have a chance to see Korean classical dance combined with the movements of contemporary dance by six female dancers of Mira Dance Company. They will showcase a reinterpreted traditional dance Hyangbalmu, an ancient court dance to praise the king.

Consul General Baekwan Hong of the Korean Consulate in Auckland said, “It is exciting to bring these world-class performers to Auckland. There are much more than K-pop and a fan dance in Korean music and dance. This performance would introduce Aucklanders dynamic as well as graceful aspects of Korean culture. I bet that the ninety minutes will fly off.”

The show requires no ticket and is a first-come-first-seated basis.
