Mask cultures are some of the oldest forms of entertainment in the world and inspired by Korea’s long history of these we have Be-Being’s Korean Masque Music Project ‘Yi-myun-gong-jak’.
This concert of traditional Korean music consists of both original compositions and reinterpretations of various traditional Korean mask plays. The title of the concert, Yi-myun-gong-jak, refers to an activity or action behind the scenes – wire-pulling in the background revealing the symbolic power of the mask and the masquerade.
This performance is brought to you by the Korean Cultural Centre UK (KCCUK) and the Korean Culture and Information Service (KOCIS) with the kind support of the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
