'The passion and the strength and power of Koreans and their long dramatic experience... this was one of the best theatre performances I have ever seen' 2014 New York Fringe Festival

The Princess Pyunggang exemplifies Korean traditional culture and history through the story of a fool Ondal and the Princess Pyunggang. Performed in English, it combines Korean opera and dance to deliver a breathtaking performance and a unique meditation on love.

Bibimbab Youth Theatre was founded in 2007 by Sookyung Hwang as a response to the dynamic shifts occurring in Korea’s artistic culture. Rearing a new generation of Korean actors, BYT is a Korean Traditional Musical Performer-centered movement dedicated to integrating modern influences while honouring Korea’s rich heritage. Taken from the name of a popular Korean dish, BYT combines parts of contemporary art and stirs them into traditional theatre, creating new recipes for Korea’s theatrical canon.
