Rising Moon is a Korean contemporary dance performance performed by Nanuri Dance company based in South Korea. This performance is combined with the Korea Art of South Korea and North Korea which were developed respectively from the Joseon Dynasty(1392~1910) through the Korean war (1950) and the present. I collected lots of Korean paintings including 40 Joseon Dynasty’s artworks, 80 South/North Korean artworks, and 80 Korean children’s arts. The children’s arts displayed in the performance are from 40 Korean-American children in the United States and 40 Korean children in South Korea. Children artworks show to wish for peace on the Korean peninsula and also for world peace. Five dancers and three musicians express the image of Korean art. They showed the movement of children wishes.
