‘NeNeNe’ is a children’s performance jointly developed and produced by Sangsangmaru and ZebraDans, a Swedish art company, to enter the global market on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Korea and Sweden. During the planning process, we found out that 'Ne Ne Ne' has a positive meaning for Koreans, but the opposite meaning 'No' in Sweden, and we burst into laughter together. We thought that the word itself reflects the different cultures of the two countries, so the title of our performance was finally born.
‘NeNeNe’, which aims to be a work that children all over the world can relate to, unfolds the stage set and costumes of Nordic sensibility and Korean intensity on the stage. It evokes the feelings of 'Fun' and 'Happiness' that can be found in the unpredictable, moving freely in space while communicating with the animals and nature of the forest. We hope that children's emotions can be tapped through dance, mime, play and sound, so that children can create their own Ne-ne-ne forest outside the theater and spread their imagination.
