About the Production

The theme of [Early Spring, Late Winter] is Maehwa flowers, the flower which signals the end of winter and ushers in spring. The performance begins at an art gallery with paintings of maehwa flowers followed by different episodes and stories about the flower in history, the past, and the present against the backdrop of the magical place which is somewhere in between late winter and early spring. ‘A Dream of Spring on Mount Nabu’, an old Chinese folktale, along with ‘Maehwa and a Bush Warbler’, a folktale from the time of Goryeo, are reinterpreted and included in the performance.


The most provocative and experimental production among all the performances by the SPAC.”

The Kukmin Daily

“The scene titled Early Flowers is short but intense stirring strong emotions and reactions from the audience.”
