Hello, This is review from Jeongdong Press!!
I went to see the musical PANN: The Stage which is staged from Dec 7 to Dec 31.
Here below I share the review!
The boundary between improvisation and script is broken!
Once the performance begins, the actors come out from the back of the audience and they make noisy to start!
They say hello and high five to the audience. It makes the auditorium and the stage as one place.
Due to the concept of story tellers who talk to the audience, the whole auditorium seems to be the stage.
Therefore, I could concentrate to the performance well.
Also, in the middle of the performance, the actors conduct impromptu talk to the audience
and this part does not seem an acting but play they enjoy.
I was very happy with the natural laughing of the actors.
The inexorability of satire!
The protagonists of the musical ‘PANN: The Stage’ are ‘Jeongi-su’ which is the profession of storyteller in the last of Joseon era.
They satirized the dark reality.
The storytellers in 2017 satirize the society where we live now and they shout “Who is the owner of DAS?!”.
I hope we also have that kind of storyteller who satirizes the society and make people feeling relieved in this era.
All kinds of genre are here on the stage!
The music of the performance is lively played in the theater.
During the performance, the musicians keep playing the music in the back of the stage.
It makes the performance more lively!
Even if the background of the performance is Joseon era, the performance presents various kind of music:
Various kinds of western music including Bossa nova, Tango, Swing are played by Korean traditional music instrument
and it was really fantastic experience for me!
Furthermore, various kinds of Korean traditional dance including Tal-chum, shoulder dance
make harmony with other kinds of music in the performance.
I had no idea about the performance before the performance start
but I wan never bored during the 2 hours of the performance.
It shows well the Korean excitement!
I hope you also come and see this great performance for your wonderful end of the year!
