Opera scenes staged as Madangguk Korean Theatre

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Madangguk or Madanggeuk (Korean: 마당극; lit. people’s theatre) is a theatrical art form that sprung up in South Korea in light of the Minjung Movement.[1] The word “madang” (마당) means “yard” whilst “guk” (극) means “theatre”. Thus, literally, it means yard theatre, which implies that this form of theatre was more personal or communal than formal or commercial. Madangguk was inspired by traditional Korean art forms such as talchum (탈춤) or masked dance. Madangguk was popularized in the 1970s-1980s by South Korean university students during a time of political oppression.[2] It was an attempt to create a counter dialogue against the government’s attempt to preserving certain art forms to create a strategic remembrance of Korean history.[2] Madangguk became a popular dramatic art form used to express political and societal issues of post colonial South Korea and played a significant role in the Minjung Movement.
