The History of Korean Western Theatre

Jaha Koo / Campo
 
' Documentary theatre about fighting for your own cultural identity '
 

SPRING will be an official test event this year. Read here all about this.

During the celebrations for 100 years of Korean theatre, the South Korean theatre maker Jaha Koo realised there is no real Korean stage tradition. What is considered theatre in Korea, is largely drawn from the Western theatre canons. Why is this? What makes South Koreans so proud of the Westernized interpretation of their theatre? The History of Korean Western Theatre is an intelligent piece of documentary theatre, a tapestry of interwoven historical, political, sociological and personal stories. With a unique starring role for the electronic soundtrack that Koo composed himself.
