Intro

A man takes a long rod on his shoulder and draws a cart carrying his luggage

Synopsis

 A man uses a long rod to drag a cart, to sing, to climb up and down somewhere, or even to cross a tightwire. At one point, the man stands up with a long rod and starts to climb it slowly...

We hear a quiet song somewhere. A pansori singer sings the song that the man sang on the street.

 

  "I, BONG n JOULE" is a work that combines the circus performance of a rod (Chinese pole) and a string (tightwire) with traditional tunes of the gayageum and daegeum. The performance expresses the process of becoming free through repetitive movements such as going up and down. Especially, the melody was improvised in the process of preparing the performance and was integrated into the whole work along with crude lyrics. The man who constantly goes up looks like today’s people living in uncertainty.​

Creator / artist

Jae-hyun AHN completed the circus skill-training courses of Chinese pole and tightwires at the "Seoul Street Arts Creation Center" in 2015 and founded 'Bongnjoule'.
The company is devoted to the presentation of high-quality, creative performances that artfully fuse human weaknesses, breathtaking stunts and other performing arts.
'Hetero-topia' is a concept referring to time and space mixing real and surreal things together. Bongnjoule creates Hetero-topia through the fusing of the whimsical imaginary circus and other realistic art genres, thus offering the audience an opportunity to see the world from a different perspective.
Bongnjoule takes Hetero-topia to the stage by combining the circus and other performing arts.
