[Changzak Gonggam: Directors] Director No. 3 Kang Boreum Theater Pan-tasy
Kang Boreum, a director who turns certainty into uncertainty, turns her attention to NTCK’s Theater Pan, where diverse sensibilities congregate. Inside the theater, there is a body with countless eyes, ears, hands and mouths. When it starts talking, you need not catch every word. If you do not understand everything, it’s alright to let things slip away casually. Theater Pan-tasy offers a playground for all—a play to be perceived with your senses first and foremost! Expect to encounter a fantasy the moment you enter the theater.
"If you say a word often enough, it becomes you."
Inside the theater, there is a body with nearly 100 (99.5 to be precise) eyes, 100 (actually, 101) ears, 100 hands and 50 mouths. We will now try to talk with and about this body.
“Hello, did you sleep well last night? Have you eaten? How are you? Are you well rested?”
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 & Arranged by Kang Boreum
A member of Project Readymade, Kang Boreum seeks to reveal the uncertainty and unnaturalness of what people take for granted here and now. Kang is interested in the way different words and bodies interact together.
