The Korean Cultural Center of Washington, D.C. presents a performance of "Work," in which traditional ballet is turned on its head by deconstructing its fundamentals and recreating the art form as a thoroughly modern physical, visual, and auditory experience for today's audiences. In the performance by the celebrated Kim Yong-geol Dance Theater, the iconic ballet practice bars are dragged into the rafters, clanging with sound, as dancers practice and perform to live music and dramatic lighting that reveal the core emotion of ballet's physical language.

Performance Timing: 60 minutes, with no intermission.
