  • 100 Street Performance Teams Selected for “Street Performance Zones”

  • SMG 2995


    Through open auditions held in April 2015, a total of 100 “Street Performance Teams” were selected to put on a variety of performances, including singing, instrumental music, magic, and traditional Korean music, at over 100 “Street Performance Zones” from May 16 to November.

    The Street Performance Zones will be open from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the weekends at a number of different places throughout the city, such as squares, plazas, parks, traditional markets, and pedestrian streets, including Deoksugung Palace Stone-Wall Road. Depending on the venue, performances will also be held on weekdays at lunchtime and in the evenings.

    In particular, performances will add some vitality to about 40 traditional markets, including Mangwon Market and Tongin Market, and popular tourist attractions, such as Star Square at the Buk Seoul Museum of Art, Deoksugung Daehanmun Gate and Stone-Wall Road, and Sejong-daero Pedestrian Street, with cartoon streets being run as special zones. In addition, performances will be held at Ogeumgyo Open Stage at Anyangcheon (Stream), Noksapyeong Station Plaza in Itaewon, and Paris Neighborhood Park, offering people more opportunities to enjoy art and performances in their day-to-day lives.
