Wild Goose Dreams

Recommended by

    A beguiling and very specific piece which places you in the subculture at the intersection of North and South Korean cultures through the lives of uprooted outcasts. Also a unique exploration of social media portrayed onstage as a hypermodern Greek chorus. Theatrical and personal all at the same time.
