Brecht’s “Alienation” is not just a theory or a theatrical methodology anymore. It has become part of our daily life making inevitable the question of what theatre is and how to do it. This project examines the sustainability of human life including the possibility of doing theatre in the current situation of social paralysis due to the outbreak of a serious infectious disease – where ‘distancing’ is practiced. We look back to the beginning of the virus and human irresponsibility and share with audiences our effort to prevent a recurrence through theatrical play.
SEONGBUKDONG PIGEONS THEATRE
As new developments went up on Seongbuk-dong Mountain
the original pigeons of Seongbuk-dong have lost their home.
(Kim Kwang-seop, Seongbuk-dong Pigeon Theatre)
Trends in contemporary Korean theatre can be divided broadly into two categories – a representative form that is faithful to text, and more conceptual performances. Seongbukdong Pigeons Theatre works on the boundary between the two - between inside the theatre and outside of the theatre, constantly questioning theatrical language and experimenting, while fiercely pursuing a kind of pure theatrical spirit. Their work attempts to ‘perform’ extreme form of experimentation within the boundaries of ‘theatre’.
Founded in 2005, the group aims to inspire a theatrical spirit that stands against the wave of commercialisation and standardization of contemporary theatre - like the pigeons of Seongbuk-dong that have survived modern urbanization. In particular, the work focuses on dismantling/reconstructing classical works.
