[Jeongdong Press : Rehearsal Sketch of ‘Lotus, A Flower Comes Out Once More’ ]
2017 Jeongdong Theater Tradition Series
Rehearsal Sketch of ‘Lotus, A Flower Comes Out Once More’!
* Meeting ‘Lotus’ which comes out once more on Jeongdong-gil where flowers are in full bloom *
In April when flowers of spring are full bloom in Jeongdong Theater
A Korean traditional dance drama, Lotus A Flower Comes Out Once More, is on the stage.
I was so excited to meet the work of truly love flower in Jeongdong Theater
which is located in Jeongdong-gil, well-known as the back ground of ‘love song of Kwanghwamun’
I show you the rehearsal sketch where the theater team were preparing the premier of Aril.6 .
Lotus, A Flower Come Out Once More is a original theater play
which borrows the motive from two Korean folk tales
contaning the spirit and the ideology of Korea.
‘Seo-ryeon’, the best dancer of the court
‘Dodam’, the greatest general of the court
The dance and face of the two main characters present well the image of a man and woman in love.
Even if this is a non-verbal performance, the detail of dance describes well everything
so it is enjoyable to see it!
The two tales which Lotus, A Flower Comes Out Once More borrowed are
‘The Tale of Mrs. Domi’ of ancient tale and ‘Igongbonpuri’, a shamanic myth.
From the tale of Mrs. Domi, the story of that a husband and a wife confirmed their love
from where a King who is a lady-killer lusts for the wife but the wife overcomes wisely borrowed.
And from ‘Igongbonpuri’ which is a shamanic tale in Jeju,
The story of that a dead wife is revived by a flower from ‘Seocheon’ is borrowed for the drama.
In this performance,
The King is captivated by Seo-ryon’s beauty that resembles a fragrant flower.
Realizing this, the queen burns with jealousy and throws Seo-ryon out of the palace.
Dodam and Seo-ryeon confirm their love for each other out of the palace.
However, the king’s solders combat ensues as Do-dam tries to stop them from taking her.
As Seo-ryon refuses to submit to the king’s orders of tending to him at night,
The King imprisons her.
From here, the remarkable activities of Dodam to save ‘Seo-ryeon’ starts.
Please look forward to it!
It is a story tells about a woman who protects herself from power corrupts
and a miracle of reincarnation in adversity.
I thought that it is a story which makes the audiences think about the real love
which is missed in the contemporary era.
On the spring of 2017, Please don’t miss this performance!
