The play Borderline, directed by Professor Kyungsung Lee of the Department of Theatre, will be presented from November 3 to November 9 at Mary Hall Grand Theater of Sogang University, Seoul.
Borderline was selected as the Repertoire of the Year by the Arts Council Korea in 2021, and is a co-production between Residenz Theater, the national theater in Bayern Munich, Germany, and the Producer Group DOT. It deals with the issue of North Korean defectors. In addition, the play has been simultaneously performed by connecting Munich and Seoul live, moving between cinematic techniques and stage directing. At the world premiere in Munich last year, after being highly praised by critics and audiences, he was officially invited to the Seoul Performing Arts Festival internationally renown, but the performance could not be performed due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, so he will meet the audience face-to-face in Korea for the first time this year.
