Photo Flash: Inside a Special Dance Performance Produced By Popra Nakayama Presented At The United Nations
On October 30th, the event "Run for SDG 3 'Good Health and Well-Being' ", one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, hosted by the UCT International Culture Development, was held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. The organizer (UCT International Culture Development, Inc., a member group in consultative status with the management of the NGO of the UN Economic and Social Council) invited the executive vice chairman of China Adventure Association, the famous explorer/mountain climber/runner from Yunnan and the founder of "Colorful Yunnan·Mysterious Baima," Feibao Jin, to attend the event and share his running life and social welfare with the guests. Sports enthusiasts from more than a dozen countries and members of UNESCO and its affiliated club centers and associations, as well as numerous guests from the art and financial sectors were invited to attend the event.
On the occasion of this momentous event, special guest artist Popra Nakayma produced and choreographed an intriguing dance spectacle to present as the concluding piece. The piece was based on the Nichibu (a form of Japanese traditional dance) and Gion Kouta (Japanese traditional music). The performers were Popra Nakayama, Sarah Doudna (Liberated Movement) and Avery MacGee. The result was a show full of mesmerizing intricacies and expressiveness. At the close of the show, the packed international audience erupted with fervent applause.
