The show, in English, is based on Hae wa Dal, Korea’s best-loved folk tale. When a tiger’s just eaten your mother and still looks hungry, it’s a good idea to run ─ as far and as fast as you can. But when you’re stuck at the top of a tall tree ─ and the tiger’s climbing towards you, licking his lips ─ and there’s not a woodcutter in sight ─ you have to think quicker than you’ve ever thought before …
I’m Still Hungry! is the company’s latest international collaboration between British and South Korean artists. Birmingham-based writer Peter Wynne Willson is also Visiting Professor in Children’s Theatre at the KoreanNational University of the Arts; so he has taken the opportunity to research and develop the script with children in Seoul as well as the UK. Rising star Lee Dong Kyu has joined the company from Korea; and Ali Belbin and Toni Midlane ─ both last seen as Maggie Thatcher in Thatcher — the Musical! join Moby Duck from the UK.
Korea’s best-loved story makes Little Red Riding Hood look as though she’s still on the nursery slopes. Storytelling, live music, puppetry and wild, exuberant Korean humour swirl together into a unique, exhilarating performance style that has become the company’s trademark ─ perfect family entertainment!
