Full Stop. Comma, Exclamation Mark! Question Mark? A stage where punctuations are the protagonists
the dance piece for children and adolescents, In the Land of Punctuation is coming back!

I admired the simple yet fierce set design, the tension and relaxation exchanged back and forth between the two pianists, and the soft and refined movement from the dancers.

A story and humor created as classical movements are clashing with colorful emotions
Son Junhyung(Researcher, TYA Research Center, The National Theater Company of Korea)

In the Land of Punctuation is a dance performance created for children and young adults, which is inspired by the picture book, In the Land of Punctuation, poetry by Christian Morgenstern and illustration by Rathna Ramanathan, where unique graphic design meets poetic depiction. The dancers who become living punctuations through the lens of choreographer Jung Youngdoo, also act as notes responding to the music on stage, while meeting other punctuations creating a unique formative image. The delightful, multifaceted music performed by two pianists, written by composer Sheen Dongil adds to the theatricality, and stage art by designer Jung Minsun completes the Land of Punctuation with refined sensibility.

A world that is peaceful yet full of tension, In the Land of Punctuation will bring you the symbols of punctuations and their meanings that are naturally permeated in our everyday lives, offering a time to encounter them audio-visually.

*Punctuations refer to the symbols that one uses in a sentence, such as commas, full stops, or question marks, etc., in order to deliver the meaning of the text accurately. Sometimes they may indicate a stop, an interruption, stepping aside, or a pause, and other times they may express the intonation, intention or emotion.
*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.
