The DAC Artist Lee Seunghee is a pansori creator that goes beyond traditional music and covers a variety of genres including music, theater, and musicals. In the 2018 performance In a Dream, Lee intensively explored the protagonist Chunhyang as an individual who determines her own fate and what takes place inside the character’s mind. Lee’s new work In a Dream – I, A Hitchhiker with a Reason is a product of her workshop in 2019. In this performance, the focus shifts from Chunhyang to her handmaid Hyangdan. The show takes the format of traditional pansori performance, with a single sorikkun(singer-storyteller) driving the narrative. Featuring the adventures of Hyangdan as she time travels to the present through her dream, the performance challenges our notions of our own identity and the era in which we live through Hyangdan’s perspective on the stories of the protagonists in Chunhyang-ga.
