Director passionate about partnerships
Having embarked on exchange programs with Korea in 2006, she has been actively involved in establishing relationships with theaters in Korea.
“We announced a partnership with Korea National University of Arts, so we will establish exchange programs where our performers and theater majors can meet and share their thoughts and experiences. Park Gye-bae, who is board chairman of the National Theater [who is based in Seoul], helped me a lot,” she says.
When asked about her operating budget, she declined to comment.
“I can’t tell the budget. The average salary for one employee is $500 and financial fund for each performance is about $5,000 and the rest is supported by the private sector, ” she said.
“The German government underwrites production of three plays. If the government backs us, we’d like to stage performances in Korea.”
