Every time I go to Daehangno, having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I wander through the small alleyways. I usually to lost somewhere between Arko Arts Center and Marronnier Park. Passing the myriads of theatre posters, my virtual schedule fills up with interesting performances to attend.
Some of these posters are beautiful, some rather conventional, and some breathtaking. From now on, whenever I happen to be in Daehangno, I try to take some pictures of those that catch my eye. Consider this either a list of upcoming performances (the images are linked) or the first gallery-style post on this blog — whatever works.
So here we go. Why did I chose those posters?
1. Because it’s from Berlin
2. For the drawing, and because of 강량원 who also directed I am My Own Wife
4. “Tradition, youth, romanticism”! – also: free & outside, what more do I want?5. Because it’s Han Tae-suk (한태숙) and I missed her dramatisation of Dante’s Divine Comedy last year
