Dancing Shadows

Is a re-telling of a Korean folk tale, written by Ariel Dorffman and Eric Woolfson. The premiere production was in Seoul, Korea in the July 2007. The show went on to sweep the Korean Musical Awards for the season.

It is the story of the women caught between two warring factions of men. Left alone in their small town on the edge of an enchanted primeval forest, the women have found a way to co-exist with both armies, until a young idealistic man enters the picture and threatens their way of life, leading to the destruction of the forest.

The filmic nature of the play offered the opportunity to underscore long sequences of dialogue, creating a powerful melding between the sung and spoken aspects of the show.
