At Ansan Culture Plaza on May 1-3, 2015

Ansan City hosts International Street Drama Festival

The Ansan City, some 26 miles southwest of Seoul, hosts the 2015 Ansan International Street Drama Festival (AISDF) at the Ansan Culture Plaza on May 1-3, 2015 in a three-day run on the theme of City in Action! which is also a slogan for the event.

A total of 61 works will be presented during the Festival, namely 48 from Korea and 13 from nine foreign countries.

The AISDF poses a substantial contrast with conventional street drama festivals in the fact that it attempts to produce new works created through a harmonious merger between the intrinsic artistic value of the street dramas and regional features of Ansan.

Among the 12 official entries are six Korean works and the remaining six entries from a number of different countries, namely France, Australia, the Netherlands and Portugal.

The Korean works consist of (1) AnNyeong (literally, Hi!) created by Creative Group NoNI, (2) Falling As I Lean Against the Wall, (3) Living The Good Life by Ambiguous Dance Company, (4) Pyro Art Work by HWARANG Art Pyrotechnics (5) Donkey Shadow Trial by Art-Factory Comma And and (6) Tempest by THEATRE HADDANGSE. Among the six Korean works, the opening work is AnNyeong.

Among the foreign works, the opening entry is one from France named Envolee created by Aerosculpture Group. Others include the Megaphone Project by the Megaphone Project from Australia, The Poet on the Street from the Netherlands and the Remaining People from Portugal.

Ambassadors and Madams are invited to attend the opening ceremony on May 1, 2015. For our possible transmission failures, please call Tel 2298-1740/2, 010-5201-1740 or send an email to edt@koreapost.com or korpost@chol.com.
