Do not sing. This is a nightmare.

YONADAB, a theatrical performance of the body, realizes the Dionysian fantasy of primitive vitality within the structure of multidisciplinary musical theater, the most iconic aesthetic form of director A-ra Kim. The integration of emotional stage language and advanced acting techniques, which broadly encompass the areas of body, sense of pitch, language, and sound, reminds us that human life serves as a driving force for creation, while the stage invites us to a world of ritualistic imagination.
