Performance Info

 


Oh Tae-suk describes the work as follows: "When I wrote this story back in ’89 I was hoping that it would end with one performance. In other words, I was hoping that, in the future, there would be no more incidents like the knifing incident at the time, or the other unbelievable things that happened (and inspired this play). A generation later in 2015, the fact that we can still put on this play and that the audience can still sympathize with it given today’s reality—this fills me with dread. I sincerely hope for the day when our society can be the sort of place where you can smile with your eyes at a stranger.”


 


 


Following its debut in 1990, Why Did Sim Cheong Plunge into the Sea Twice? won the grand prize at the 28th Dong-A Theater Awards in 1991 and won at the 1st Daesan Literary Awards in 1993. In 2005 it was the first Asian play to be invited to a seminar hosted by the Comparative Drama Conference in LA, receiving high praise from academics the world over.


 

Production Details

Director
Taesuk Oh
The Mokwha Repertory Company was established in 1984 around Oh Tae-suk, who had for a while created his own unique world of theater, with concepts from traditional drama such as "omission," "leaping," and "unexpectedness and spontaneity" forming the foundation of Mokwha’s unique methodology. Embracing the philosophy of traditional drama, which incorporates the audience as a protagonist, Mokwha’s internalization of this mentality led to a natural interest in "our language," "our gestures," and "our sounds." Like its motto, "A mind that moves a spinning wheel," and with 365 days a year filled with performances and practices, Mokwha continues to vividly express Korea’s colors, language, and identity, aspiring to modernize the traditional as well as sharing with audiences elements of Korean traditions that warrant preservation.
