As a result, upcoming performances and festivals in Seoul and Gyeonggi regions have been called off or postponed.  
The debut recital of "The Triad," which consists of three young classical musicians, was canceled. The performance was set to take place on Aug. 29 at the Seoul Arts Center in southern Seoul.
Musical “Murder Ballad” will be suspended until the end of this month. The musical will be held at the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts, central Seoul.  
 
 
CLARA-JUMI KANG & SON YEOL-EUM DUO RECITAL  
Seoul Arts Center, Concert Hall


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.
 
Although Kang and Son played as a duo professionally in 2012 for the first time, the two have known each other for a long time and played together many times when they attended Korea National University of Arts in 2004.
 
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.”
 
Kang is a gold medal laureate of the 2010 International Violin Competition of Indianapolis. Son garnered attention when she performed as a soloist with the New York Philharmonic in 2004. In 2011, she won silver at the International Tchaikovsky Competition.

JAMIE
LG Arts Center

The hit musical centers around Jamie New, a 16-year-old misfit who is about to graduate from high school. The boy, who wants to become a drag queen, eventually decides to attend a prom party wearing a dress. While browsing for an outfit to wear to the upcoming party, Jamie comes across Hugo, the owner of the clothing shop and a legendary drag queen.
 
After the encounter, Jamie comes to perform as part of a drag queen show prior to the prom and becomes an overnight star at his school. But the school refuses to allow Jamie to show up at prom wearing a dress.
 
Jamie also has to deal with his strict father who doesn’t want to accept his son.
 
The musical is a story about a boy overcoming all the prejudices and is based on the 2011 documentary series titled “Jamie: Drag Queen at 16,” which aired on the BBC.

SINAWI & DARKNESS POOMBA BY KIM JAE-DUK  
LG Arts Center


Sept. 17, 18: Young choreographer Kim Jae-duk’s two signature pieces, “Sinawi” and “Darkness Poomba” will be staged. The 36-year-old versatile artist began learning dance at the age of 16. Kim took classes in contemporary dance, ballet and traditional Korean dance, but he wanted to create his own genre so he began choreographing.
 
“Sinawi” is a solo performance by Kim while “Darkness Poomba” is presented by Modern Table, a modern dance troupe, which Kim also belongs to.
 
“Darkness Poomba” is based on pumba, a traditional song performed by gakseori. Dressed up in silly costumes and makeup, gakeseori lived like nomads and would perform songs and dance for food and money at fairs and marketplaces.
 
“Darkness Poomba” reportedly reinterprets the feeling of han (traditional sentiment of sadness) of the marginalized with modern dance.
 
When the dance reaches halfway, Kim will play harmonica and kazoo. 
 
The performance starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from 35,000 won to 55,000 won.
