Abstract

508 BOOK REVIEWS “without always knowing” a Korean reality. Interestingly, this perspec- tive plays a significant role in emphasizing the multitude of performances and summoning them visibly into the context of contemporary Korean theatre. This contributes to enriching Korean theatre in relation to their artistic aesthetics. Performing Korea provides us a meticulous landscape of con- temporary Korean theatre that might have, otherwise, remained no more than one of the Asian theatres. Diverse ranges of photos help general readers to understand the “mystic Koreanization” in contemporary Korean performances and culture. This book is not only a contemporary topography of Korean theatre practices, but also an insightful record of Korean culture that is intertwined with the author’s observations on everyday existence. In this sense, this book encapsulates the fact that theatre is a product of multifaceted dimensions of social and cultural practices, as well as that of traversing a particular geography. Furthermore, it can be said that this book opens up a new alternative of narration of a Korean theatre in the context of our global age.
