A work drawing from “pansori”, a traditional Korean folk art consisting of traditional stories sung with orally-transmitted methods. The way of storytelling, the way of singing–demo version is based on The Song of the Red Wall, a war tale that is part of the Annals of the Three Kingdoms, one of the five great “pansori”. The process of learning the “pansori” is recreated on stage for the general public with no knowledge of the art, and this process is simultaneously synchronized with the process by which the orally-transmitted “pansori” was formed. The tradition – a pansori dealing with war – is linked to today’s battles and historical events, in an exploration of ways to grasp tradition and link it with the present.
