In June, support from the TelepART Mobility Support Platform allocated by the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux goes to:

Jaha Koo’s Cuckoo at Hangö Teaterträff

Cuckoo is the second part of Korean artist Jaha Koo’s Hamartia Trilogy which focuses on the tragic impacts of the inescapable past on our lives today. In bittersweet and humorous dialogues, Jaha and his clever rice cookers take you on a journey through the last 20 years of Korean history, combining personal experience with political events and reflections on happiness, economic crises and death.

The performance will take place at Hangö Teaterträff, an annual Swedish-language performing arts festival where local and international artists are invited to present and discuss their work. It is located in Hanko, a small town in the unique archipelago of the southernmost point of mainland Finland.

The performance will be in Korean with English and Swedish subtitles.
