It is rather an official and ceremonial feast and usually bigger in scale than Jinyeon (進宴). Thus the Jinpungjeong(進豊呈)II was selected to celebrate the Carnival International de Victoria 2016 to be held in the Republic of Seychelles, likewise it had been in the palace of previous Kingdom in Korea. The combination of traditional beauty, elegance, and dynamism of the performance of Jinpungjeong(進豊呈) II will be accompanied by the Taepyeongmu, the solo dance of the Queen of the old kingdom expressing her wish for peaceful reign.

The exhilarating Sogomu will also be performed in the open air.

 

 

South Korean team, TAE HYE SYN KARMAFREE DANCE COMPANY, inherits and develops Korean traditional dance, but also the revitalization of Korean creative dances through the reinterpretation of its traditional dance movement and the creation of a new dance image. For the Carnaval International de Victoria, a 14 member delegation from South Korea is to visit Seychelles.

Through the platform of the Carnaval International de Victoria, I expect bilateral exchanges in tourism and understandings of each others culture will be further strengthened.
