2. Korean puppet performance ‘Dallae’s Story’
KCC Thailand also provide the free online nonverbal puppet performance ‘Dallae’s Story’, sponsored by Seoul Art Center(SAC), a big arts complex in Korea. The story would be about an ingenuous child named Dallae and her ordinary family whose lives are interrupted by Korean War (1950–1953). The piece does not directly discuss the war itself, but rather portrays the efforts of a family to overcome the hardships of wartime in a fairy tale-like fantasy along with Korean traditional music, glamorous sets, and a uniquely vivid combination of human performers and puppets for an exciting performance that appeals to both children and their parents. Look forward to a topical piece that graphically conveys the magnificence and importance of love between human individuals and family members. The performance will be opened by KCC Thailand’s Facebook page (facebook.com/koreanculturalcenterTH) on 20th August at 7PM.
