Earlier this year together with the Imaginary Theatre team from Australia and Korea, I gathered in Brisbane for the final stage of creation of our new performance work 보인다 - I See You. Once again we found ourselves in an intensive time of making and rehearsing, in the lead up to the launch of the work at the 'Out Of The Box Festival' held at Queensland Performing Arts Centre. After the initial festival season we shared the work on a small Queensland tour and a quick trip to Korea for the Assitej Children's Festival in Seoul. Working with a team of Korean and Australian artists it was very important for us to share the work in both countries. It was such a delight to see this work through to it's completion. We have been working away at this for many years now and I am very proud of what we have created together, amidst what has been a very challenging year in terms of arts funding. It's moment like this when you finally share the work with it's audience and you can fully understand just how vital work for our very young children and their families can be. A huge thank-you to everyone who made this work possible I will never forget this time we spend together.
Here is how Imaginary Theatre describes the work we have produced-
보인다 - I See You
A performance for children
aged 2-5 and their adults.
온 가족이 함께 즐길 수 있는 2-5세
We feel the cold and place footsteps in the snow.
We run through raindrops and sail across memories.
We bustle and balance as highways unravel.
And then, I see you.
I See You is a touching early-years theatre experience where sounds, images and sensations transform the mundane into dreamlike worlds - worlds where our stories connect and liberate us. A collaboration between artists from Australia and Korea, this bilingual and interactive performance will inspire play, warm the heart, and set the imagination alight.
우리 모두 함께
차가운 눈 속에서 오들오들 떨어보고, 하얀 눈 위에 발자국을 남겨보아요.
쏟아지는 빗속에서 맘껏 달려도 보고, 우리 안의 기억 속을 이리저리 여행해봐요.
긴 선을 따라 생겨난 도로 위를 씽씽 달려 보고, 사뿐사뿐 걸어도 보아요.
자, 이젠 난 당신을 볼 수 있어요.
보인다 I See You는 우리가 일상에서 듣고, 보고, 느끼던 평범한 소리와 이미지 그리고 감각을 마치 꿈결과도 같은 새로운 경험의 세계로 전환해주는 유아•어린이 체험 연극입니다. 한국 및 호주 예술가들의 공동협업으로 만들어진 본 공연은 한-영 2개 국어로 진행되며, 극 중 관객과의 상호 교감을 통해 놀이에 대한 새로운 영감을 불러일으키고, 관객의 가슴을 무궁무진한 상상력으로 따뜻이 채워줄 것입니다.
Here is a taste of what it looks like.
