Tiger Is Coming
South Korea is home to one of the oldest and also the most vibrant, inventive and astounding new cultures in the modern world. From 26 August and throughout September The Coronet Theatre presents TIGER IS COMING – a celebration of contemporary Korean art, performance and culture.
With a dazzling mix of music, pop, dance, theatre, performance and art – TIGER IS COMING showcases some of South Korea’s most famous artists, coming to the UK for the first time.
From artist Choi Jeong Hwa whose lively, vibrant, large-scale, inflatable pieces will encase the Coronet Theatre façade, to global dance sensations Ambiguous, and Korean pop icons, Leenalchi, this festival brings the buzz and excitement of the current Korean arts scene to London.
Anda Winters, Artistic Director ’I have been going to Korea for many years and fell in love with the culture. I have observed it growing further and faster culturally and economically than any other I’ve seen. Their commitment to and investment in arts has produced a very visual, energetic and quirky artistic landscape, and I want to share the thrill of it with UK audiences.’
