The Daejeon Metropolitan Government announced on the 26th that it successfully held a performance to commemorate the reopening of the Daejeon Intangible Cultural Heritage Center.
The commemorative performance, which took place on the 25th and 26th, was a performance to pray for the health and well-being of all Daejeon citizens who were tired of COVID-19.
Last year, the Daejeon Intangible Cultural Heritage Center was shut down and refurbished for a long time due to the COVID-19. The greatly expanded stage has narrowed its relationship with the audience, and the height will also be lowered, with dynamic and friendly performances reminiscent of Madang Theater, a traditional Korean banquet style.
Also, all of the newly installed sound reflections, stage lighting, and sound systems are expected to support high-quality performances by intangible cultural asset holders.
Sohn Chul-woong, director of the Daejeon Metropolitan City Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau, said, "The remodeling project will allow the Daejeon Intangible Cultural Heritage Center to have a concert hall optimized for Gugak and traditional dance. We will comply with thorough quarantine standards and make efforts to cheer up citizens who are tired of Corona 19 through various performances and events.“
Meanwhile, the next performance of the Daejeon Intangible Cultural Heritage Center will be "Monthly Intangible Cultural Heritage" on the 29th of next month, inviting the owner of the intangible cultural heritage in Daejeon on the last Wednesday of every month.
