Greetings from BIDF Steering Committee Chairman
Now, we live in an unstable era. Due to the corona pandemic that no one has ever experienced, our daily life is undergoing major changes, and if you look around, there are too many neighbors in trouble. In a sad reality, we are always managing an unstable life. Even though, the winter wind that was as cold as ice is turning into a warm breeze and we are fast moving towards spring. The law of nature that everything changes and has an end keeps us from not losing the knots of hope in our lives. Now, Busan is also changing. The Busan International Dance Festival will lead the era of change and make Busan an international cultural city.
Due to achieving this goal, the Busan International Dance Festival will build a platform as a global festival by revitalizing performance contents and strengthening solidarity with the local community. We will start sailing with the goal of creating a brand of Busan itself as a global international cultural city by leading new performing arts and cultural contents based on dance.
Busan is a special city. It is an international maritime city with natural resources for tourism and logistics and a concentration of a network of millions of people and industries. By vitalizing the most of these conditions, the Busan International Dance Festival will do its best to make Busan a dynamic and lively cultural city, an artistic creative city with a bright future for young dancers, and a hub city of international culture and art. Dancing lovers, Busan citizens, all of you around the world, come to Busan Let's overcome together and connect hope.
