About the group:
Performance Group Tuida was first created in 2001 by eight graduates of the Korean National University of Arts. It aims to create open, nature-friendly and evolving plays. Their plays are known for using creative puppets, masks and music and their Korean-yet-cosmopolitan style has earned high acclaims in Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, United States and Ireland. Tuida also wants to adopt nature-friendly ways in their production.
It’s my pleasure to bring back Tale of Haruk. I still remember the enthusiastic audiences from our last tour in India. Look forward to meet more audiences and share the thoughts!
