A performance by Noripae Hallasan has consoled the victims of the Jeju Massacre since it was first organized in 1987. The April Gut borrows its form from the Korean Madang-gut, which is performed in an open space, relatively free from formalities.
The scenarios of the April Gut differ every year and they are usually original (that is, not used in the past). This year’s April Gut, The Bird of Hyunhaetan is based on the modern lives of Koreans living in Japan. "Hyunhaetan" refers to the sea between southern Korea and southern Japan, across which many Koreans travelled during the Japanese occupation of Korea in the early part of the 20th century.
The play will be performed at the Jeju Culture & Arts Center from April 26 to 28, at 7:30 p.m., with an additional performance at 3 p.m. on April 27.
Tickets are 15,000 won for adults and 8,000 won for students.
