Korea’s best-loved folk tale at the KCC

stillhungry-show-shadowI’m Still Hungry!, Moby Duck’s new show for family audiences aged four and over, will be coming to the Korean Cultural Centre on 13 June 2009.

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!
