Performance Info

 
No Longer Gagok: Room 5↻ is a piece structured in such a way that the audience member can experience, with the senses, traditional gagok, an art form from the pungryubang [풍류방], or the musical salons of 18th-century Korea. This piece interprets the musical form of the gagok in a three-dimensional, spatial way, and by representing the musical form with the location of the rooms, lets this spatiality show. The positioning of the voices and the use of texture all contribute to PARK PARK’s interpretation of traditional gagok. Room 5↻, which progresses like a one-person show, actively demonstrates how the musical form has its foundations in poetry. The unique spatial devices of Room 5↻ affect the inner depths of the listener and reveal the unique musical characteristics of the gagok genre and its secret poetic language. At the same time, it takes the origins of gagok—a play only available to a small group of people—and recreates these characteristics in a more inclusive setting. As part of PARK PARK’s No Longer Gagok series, which places traditional culture in a contemporary context, Room 5↻ is the second in the series, preceded by Four Nights, and its formation is completed by the audience’s act of viewing.

Production Details

Director
PARK, Minhee
PARK PARK is a group led by artist Park Minhee, who has consistently worked to realign traditional culture within a contemporary context. The group explores traditional gagok and lyrics, sijo, or traditional Korean poetry, and vocal styles that retain traces of their regional characteristics. Through their performances, the members present some of the minor conclusions they have drawn as a result of their musical exploration. The performances are structured around the inside and outside of a musical format that emphasizes vocalization, and this method of construction ensures that the format allows for interpretation among the audience, stage, and performance. Major pieces include Four Nights and Room 5↻ from the No Longer Gagok series, and these pieces demonstrate the "act of doing gagok" method that Park Minhee has explored over the years.
