Seoul Theater Bomb held two overseas invitational performances in 2017. They were <The Forest of My Tree> and <Othello>. On the last day of the <Othello> performance, I watched the performance and participated in "Talk with Artists."
<Othello>, which was performed for 100 minutes, is Shakespeare's work, so I had the preconception that the format would be predetermined and strict; after watching the performance, however, I realized that the same work could be interpreted differently, and such left a great impression on me. Without Seoul Theater Bomb, we probably would not have been able to see the work from a different perspective.
After the performance, the actors had time to talk with the directors. The audience, actors, and directors gathered together and had time to talk. I found the emcee’s comments particularly memorable.
“During the curtain call after a performance, I want the audience to cheer and clap as hard as they can. Whether such applause is intended for the actors or sound or lighting effects or writer, or directors, or anything, it will be a big encouragement.”
