My Love DMZ comes to Kingston

“Love” and “DMZ” do not often appear together in the same sentence. But this is the 60th anniversary of the start of the Korean War, and there’s a special production as part of the New Malden Arts Festival on 20th July. And in a special deal, LKL readers will get free admission to the performance – though the organisers would appreciate a donation. More details below.

My Love DMZ describes the effort to keep the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) safe from thoughtless and reckless land development.

It is a humorous tragedy with 10 auspicious animals trying to protect their land, the DMZ.

The play borrows animals’ eyes to look into the past, present and the future of Korea.

The DMZ in this play is beyond the symbol of division and war: it is an imaginative and mysterious place, where animals in fairy tales or myths such as deer, ponies, goats, donkeys, and mandarin ducks try to keep safe and untouched.
