[Changzak Gonggam: Directors] Director No. 2 Jin Yeob Lee’s Community Unseen turmoil


“You’re invited to a world devoid of light.”

Director Jin Yeob Lee, who has mainly presented community-based works in everyday space, turns her attention to the theater. Blindfolded audience members put on torn socks before being slowly led into the theater by someone else. They encounter darkness. It’s time to open all your senses but sight, and welcome a world without light with your whole body.





“Welcome! You’re warmly invited to join us.”

In the spring of 2022, in Seoul, you’ve arrived in a world without light. Some of those who perceive light may call it darkness. For some, it may not be darkness anymore. This is an unfamiliar place to you—a frightening place, which nevertheless brings you face to face with unknowingness. Why don’t you let us guide you, and believe in the wonders of the moment for a while?



Changzak Gonggam: Directors


Launched for the purpose of developing original plays with leading directors in the field, this program presents three new productions following the Sharing the Creative Process stage. In 2021, directors Kim Mi-ran, Jin Yeob Lee, and Kang Bo-reum explored the timely theme of “Disability and Art” and developed their own creative process by engaging in free discussions and experimenting with various forms. The three new works—staged consecutively in Theater PAN—showcase diverse modes of communication between disabled and non-disabled people, including an encounter between people with hearing loss and hearing people, participation from audience members relying on the senses of touch and hearing, and a search for “misfit” with both disabled (visual, hearing, brain lesion) and non-disabled actors.

*Misfit: Something that occurs when the material arrangements of the individual and the environment are mutually inconsistent

Directed by Jin Yeob Lee (Elephants Laugh)

For some time, I’ve been meeting new people only through performing arts. Perhaps that’s why I enjoy mediating dramatic encounters among strangers through performing arts.
