Seoul Performing Arts Festival 2015

Things to do
It’s slowly getting chillier out so get your culture on, inside. Organized by the Arts Council Korea, SPAF is an annual event that began in 2001. The festival brings dance, theater and music under one roof. Overseas performances will bring in talented acts from countries such as Germany, Belgium, Spain, Slovenia, Italy, France and Korea. A few of the highlights from the festival include Spanish contemporary flamenco dance piece Bosque Ardora, Kim Seol-jin (winner of season two of Dancing 9) performing with the French dance company Peeping Tom as part of their fantastical performance entitled À Louer and the musical theater of Slovenian National Theatre Drama Ljubljana in  The Crazy Locomotive. Fans of Shakespeare might want to check out Robert Wilson’s production of Shakespeare’s Sonnets that is self-described as “a bizarre, dream like pageant,” as performed by the Berliner Ensemble. The solo dance portion will include performances by Jang Yun-na, Cha Jin-yeob and Kim Joo-won, as well as visual art by Vakki. It’s our high-brow date recommendation of the month.
