"Before After"
(South Korea)
17.11.2016 - 20.11.2016

Award-winning South Korean director and actors join forces
To examine the social consequences of the accident and tragedy of MV Sewol

Before After is divided into sections based on time. It shows the changes that occur before and after a devastating event. A time before and after is created after a tragic, irreversible event. What experiences do we go through that make us realize that an event has affected “our” lives? The play Before After begins by answering this question.

Soo-yeon Sung has gradually witnessed the death of her father who has cancer. San-ha Chae feels indebted after his friend’s death. Sung-ik Jang, who has almost lost his sight due to the assault he suffers in the hands of the government, has fallen into a state of helplessness. Da-huin Kim is trekking in the Himalayas on April 16, 2014. Kyung-min Na retraces those times gone by from his diary and memories. Su-jin Jang dramatizes the actions and feelings of the government.

The play uses a pivotal event in our society that intersects with before and after events that occur in different people’s lives. What happens as a point in “my” time on stage suddenly meets “your” space.
