DONGHAEAN BYEOLSHINGUT  

National Theater of Korea, Haneul Theater
July 5: A traditional shaman ritual, or gut, will be performed by members of Donghaean Byeolsingut Preservation Association.
Of all the remaining gut, Donghaean Byeolshingut is best known for its sophisticated dance moves. The ritual normally takes place for two or three days to soothe the souls of the deceased, but it was shortened by nine hours as part of the annual Yeowoorak Festival. 
Hosted by the National Theater of Korea, the festival, in its 11th year, has been making efforts to show the beauty of traditional Korean music by blending it with other genres of music from classical to jazz to hip-hop. 
It is a rare chance to see the prototype of gut. 
The performance lasts nine hours, but the audience is allowed to leave and re-enter freely. 
All seats are priced at 70,000 won ($58).
The performance starts at 1 p.m.

Sept. 4: Violinist Clara-Jumi Kang and pianist Son Yeol-eum join hands for an upcoming recital. The two musicians first collaborated with each other in 2012 at the Carnegie Hall in New York. The collaboration was so well received that the two have been playing together on and off since then. 
The last time the duo performed on home soil was in 2016.

The two will play pieces including Richard Georg Strauss’ "Sonata for Violin and Piano in E flat major op.18" and Stravinsky’s “The Fairy's Kiss-Divertimento.”
