Wang Center Recommends:
Shakespeare's COMEDY OF ERRORS
in the style of Korean Masked Dance Drama TALCHUM
Sunday, April 15, 2 pm and 5pm, Wang Theatre
Performed by Stony Brook University's Actor's Conservatory
Directed by Chan Lee
This delightful interpretation of Shakespeare's COMEDY OF ERRORS is done in the style of the famed Korean Mask Dance Drama named TALCHUM. With its origins as a morality play by Buddhist monks and for exorcism in Korea, these dramas encourage audiences to laugh at themselves while performers rhythmically jump, leap and squat to the sounds of a small percussion group. Thus this Talchum version of the Comedy of Errors is accompanied by the pulsating rhythms of SBU's own Korean drumming ensemble DDKY. Featuring pianist and Stony Brook idol finalist Kyle Manly and SB idol contest winner Taylor Coonska with dance by Andrew Meeth.
