Korea-Japan art performers to come together at Hongdae

The annual Korea-Japan art performance is back. Dubbed the 2009 Korea-Japan Art Relay, this year’s performance features 16 performance art teams – six from Korea and 10 from Japan – at the Hongik University (Hongdae) district of Seoul from Nov. 14 to 22. 

The latest event, jointly staged by theaters in Korea and Japan, has been providing a forum for various experimental pieces in dance, music, drama and other performances. There will also be an impromptu show jointly written by Korean and Japanese playwrights.

The Korean works to be performed are Park Mi-ru and Lee Ji-woo’s image music “Arirang - the breath of Korea,” Choi Il-soon’s one-act play “A long way, song of life,” Park Jin-won’s modern dance “U.F.O.,” Kang Jeong-gyeun’s mime “Bag in,” and Shin Yong-gu’s performance “Going as I embrace the wind.”

Japanese teams will present Yumi Sagara’s “River and Blood,” Hayashi Keiichi’s dance performance “a#6” Hanaue Naoto’s Buto Performance and more. Tickets will cost 20,000 won. For more information, call 02-338-9240. For free interpreting, call 1330 (English, Chinese and Japanese).
