Inspired by their country’s experiences during the Japanese Occupation and the Korean War The Angel and the Woodcutter is a traditional folk tale loved by Koreans. It tells the story of an angel who ventures down to earth to bathe in the mountain streams, where she is discovered by a woodcutter and his mother.
Director Park Chung-euy takes the framework of this traditional tale, and sets it amidst a terrible war. The woodcutter is forced to go to war, and the women are tossed from place to place by violence and starvation. This production explores the extreme fragility of everyday life, and the strength and endurance of human love.
“…interweaved with immense skill and theatrical presence. Their enthralling mime and movement richly and sensitively proclaims universal themes of compassion and hope” – The Stage
In Korea’s traditional performing arts there is a saying that the most important thing is breathing; breathing as communication. Koreans believe that if the actors and the audience can breathe together then they can feel each other’s hearts.
Nominated for Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award 2007 and awarded five stars by the British Theatre Guide this utterly compelling, unique and critically acclaimed masterpiece of movement theatre is staged entirely without words to haunting music and has been performed around the world, including a hit run at Edinburgh 2007.
