“Waltz is connected with the spirit of revolution."
President Park Kyungju of Salad TV, planner of the performance 'Salad Waltz,' said "Waltz is connected with the spirit of revolution and it was used as a tool to express the feelings of freedom during the French Revolution. Waltz is not a dance of privileged class in Mongol, China and the states from the old Soviet Union."
On October 16, Theater Salad participated in the openning ceremony of the exhibition "Bad Boys, Here and Now" in Kyunggido Contemporary Museum, Ansan, Kyunggi-do. The title of the performance was 'Salad Waltz.'
Through the performance and video work under the same title 'Salad Waltz,' President Park explained, "Performance 'Salad Waltz' is the 'gesture of communication' which migrants in Korea show to Koreans."
The Mongolian migrant women participating in the performance danced waltz to the 'slightly sad and graceful' melody of waltz music and invited visitors in the hall for dances. This promoted warm atmosphere in the hall.
The exhibition, a part of the annual plan of the museum, introduces young artists in their 20s and 30s who experiment and practice new paradigms of political arts since 1990s.
