Full stop. Exclamation mark! (Bracket) Question mark?
The story unfolds as the punctuations become the main characters
Korea National Contemporary Dance Company’s new dance piece for children and young adults,
In the Land of Punctuation

Imagine a land where punctuations such as full stops, commas, the brackets and question marks exist as protagonists of a story. As a picture book, In the Land of Punctuation(poetry by Christian Morgenstern and illustration by Rathna Ramanathan) plays around with the compositional elements of punctuations to complete the dramatic narrative created with unique graphic design and poetic expression. This performance, inspired by a picture book, unfolds the narrative of the punctuations on stage interpreted by choreographer Jung Youngdoo, delivered through the bodies and movements of the dancers. The delicate yet playful forms of movement by choreographer Jung Youngdoo, the stimulating art and costumes based on the vivid images from the original illustration by designer Jung Minsun, and the music performed with two different pianos by composer Sheen Dongil, all combine to bring audiovisual pleasure to the audience members. This contemporary dance performance will not only be appealing to the children and young audience, but also with their entire family members.

*In the Land of Punctuation is a performance based on a picture book of the same title by Tara Books, translated and published in Korea by BORIM PRESS.
