It’s a midsummer’s night and the mischievous Dokkebi (Korean goblins), who love dancing and singing, are having a big party…
In this version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by the award-winning Yohangza Theatre Company the fairy king and queen, Oberon and Titania, reverse roles. Bottom is a country woman searching for Sansam, very rare hundred-year-old ginseng, and Puck splits into twins.
The tangled tale of four lovers is spun out through a fresh mix of dance, voice, percussion, and performances bursting with mischief and boundless energy. This hilarious, fun-packed 2005 Edinburgh hit will delight and captivate both adults and children alike.
Yohangza is a South Korean theatre company founded in 1997 by director and writer Jung Ung Yang. The company’s work presents an exciting collision of the past and present through a reworking of existing Korean identity, spirit and style infused with contemporary elements. Yang recently won South Korea’s Best Young Playwright of the Year Award.
Performed in Korean with English surtitles.
