Following sold-out seasons of 지하 Underground in Brisbane and Seoul, Motherboard Productions returns to WTF in 2016 with a bold new work of transcultural storytelling.
만약 인당수가 아닌 인도양에 ‘심청이’가 뛰어든다면? 그리고 그녀를 다시 바다로 뛰어들게 한 것은 무엇인가?
이 어둡고, 정치적이고, 유쾌하기까지 한 ‘심청’의 새로운 이야기! 술, 팝 음악, 한국의 전통 판소리와 신체극이 곁들여진 이 독특한 공연에 당신을 초대합니다!
Most Koreans can recite Shimchong’s tale… Her mother died in childbirth, her father is blind, and she sacrifices herself to the Dragon King – the god under the sea – in order to restore her father’s sight. But what if Shimchong was reborn in Australia, a young woman burning with revolutionary desire? What would drive her to jump into the sea a second time?
In this dark, political, and often hilarious retelling, you’re invited to drink and sing along as contemporary pop music, pansori, and physical theatre combine in an event that is as uniquely Australian as it is Korean.
The Sun 21 February performance will be Auslan-interpreted. This performance of 심청 <Shimchong>: Daughter Overboard! will feature infrequent course language, haze, strobe lighting, live flame effects, and thematic content which may distress some viewers.
