Festival Description

The festival that represents the contemporary dance in Asia, MODAFE, was conceived and initiated by the establishment of the Korean Contemporary Dance Association in 1980 under the title of Korean Contemporary Dance Festival. Through maturation and development over the past twenty years, it was remolded as Modern Dance Festival, in short MODAFE, and has established itself as an international celebration to mark an ongoing network of dance-spirit and offer a new direction in the creative world of dancing. MODAFE is held at the Art Hall of the Korean Culture and Arts Foundation and at Mary Hall at Sogang University.
The objectives of MODAFE are the pursuit and the development of innovative art form that surpasses the boundary of existing art genre under the belief that the future direction of performing arts lies with the spirit of experiment and innovation.
