Goblin Party - Once Upon A Time 
By deconstructing and creatively retelling ancient Korean stories, Once Upon A Time aims to reconnect audiences with the humour and traditions of yesteryear.

SILENTIUM is the visualisation of emotions in its extreme state, in the dark. Cleverly playing with stage lighting this captivating performance invites you to view the body as an optical illusion and decipher what is reality. Even if we don’t like what we see, we cannot hide it, cover it, or make it disappear. We are what we are.

They have been consistently selected for projects supporting young promising choreographers, further solidifying their own style and direction. They have also been broadening their activity boundaries by getting involved in various projects such as collaborating with visual artists and working in art galleries.

The Choi X Kang Project works actively inside and outside of Korea in recognition of Korean dance scene for its potential in the unique style.

Goblin Party
Founded in 2007, Goblin Party has performed nationally and internationally using a traditional Korean monster goblin as its symbol.

As the company consists of artists who can both choreograph and dance, the choreographer or a leader may differ from piece to piece. Goblin Party places emphasis on communication and is interested in producing a performance that enhances the vision of audience.
