A charming, beautiful and thoughtfully crafted physical theatre production from South Korea’s rising stars.

Oksun is a young girl working in a Japanese factory during the Korean industrial boom of the 1930s. Silently she endures the back-breaking work and oppressive conditions. One day she is ordered by the foreman to spy on her friend, who they suspect of rallying the workers. What she hears and events that follow make Oksun decide the time has come to find her voice.

Combining text, movement and sound, an ensemble cast of four performers bring Oksun's story to life. Yangson Project is a collaboration between actors Sang-kyu Son, Jo-ah Yang and Jong-ook Yang and director Ji-hye Park. This is a unique opportunity to see this exciting company’s first UK performance.
