"Choong Hyang": Korean Play at Ranga Shankara

Ranga Shankara and InKo Centre, Chennai present Choon-Hyang (True Love), a world-class Korean play in English on 22 October & 23 October at 7.30 pm. This is a part of Ranga Shankara’s Theatre For Children program AHA!, that is supported by Britannia Industries Limited.

Choon-Hyang has played to great acclaim in New York, Edinburgh, Shanghai and Singapore and will play in Bangalore as part of their India tour.

Written and directed by Kevin Kim, Choon-Hyang tells the traditional Korean story of a young girl named Choon-Hyang. A heart-warming tale, it has been passed down orally in Korea for centuries. Choon-Hyang will transport the audience to the magic of ancient Korea through music, dance and the sheer exuberance of its young actors! This acclaimed production by Theatre Seoul stars 19 young Koreans between 9 and 18 years of age.

Another major highlight of the play is that the costumes have been created exclusively from traditional Korean Hanji paper, which is known for extraordinary strength and elasticity. The designs and colours that have been created in this paper for the costumes are amazing and one of its kind.

Tickets are priced at Rs. 200. Online booking is available at www.bookmyshow.com. Like always, Ranga Shankara has organized two shows exclusively for schools, on the mornings of 23 Oct and 24 Oct. Schools can reach out on 26493982 or aha.rangashankara@gmail.com for more details. (more…)
