Theatre-Game, 2017-18

venue: Sewoon Building area, Seoul, South Korea

duration: 55-60minutes 

It is an immersive theatre combined with a mobile app and game format. 

Audiences are asked to download the app on their mobile phone and turn on once they arrive at the starting location. 

The mobile application consists of text message window and a map in the main interface. 

It also includes various functions: a code scanner, VR viewer, sound player and AR.

It starts with a text message from a 17 years old girl called ‘Bahn’ migrated from the North. 

She asks audiences for help to find her way out. 

As the theatre-game continues, the audience explores every corner of 60’s brutal buildings and narrow back allies of the town 

chasing her traces and life story with a few hints given in her texts. 

The places and certain milestones the audience passes by are related to Bahn’s past and memories. 

As each mission is cleared, Bahn gets younger by year and eventually she becomes ten.

Four People and Four Different Journeys

 The story begins in an abandoned house in the center of Namdaemun. 

The personal lives of four people, between the ages of 20 and 70, who lived in this house between 1953 and 2005, represent the modern history and social turbulence of the period. This participatory performance is joined by the audience, who set off on a journey selected from 4 different stories, utilizing the map, story, music and radio drama offered on their mobile phones. Each journey corresponds to the richness of installation, sound, video and live performance in every corner of Bukchang-dong.
