Singing Actors Repertory Company
In 13 Fruitcakes, a time traveling sequence with the mysterious drag queen Orlando(the protagonist of the novel of the same name by Virginia Woolf) unfolds on stage. During this journey, the audience learns the ”13 great members of the LGBT community” who left significant marks in the development of humanity in culture, arts, science, and politics, while living under the shadows of society’s discrimination, oppression, and injustice.
Laughing and crying together while watching the beautiful, yet heartbreaking, hidden stories of their lives, audiences can reflect once again on the true meaning of justice, equality, and peace; what it really means to live a human life; and how we should lead our lives.
Since he started to work in 1995 at La MaMa in New York, the center of experimental theatre movement of the US, director Byungkoo Ahn has been active in Korea, US and Europe as a creative artist. He is one of the very few Koreans to be the official member of Stage Directors and Choreographers Society of the US.
He founded Singing Actors Repertory Company, an experimental music theatre company, in 2013 with opera singer Ja-young Jeong and has created musical theatre pieces of various forms and performed both in and outside of Korea. Inspired by the styles of pop music videos and not confined to one specific genre, he invented, by merging it with classical music into stage presentation, a genre called ‘Musical Vignettes,’ continuing to expand his horizon.
His major works include <Hamyul/Hamlet)>(2011) and <Voyage: Musical Vignettes)>(2013), which received rave reviews from the critics of world’s prestigious press including The New York Times and NYTheatre.com.
