English Pocket Opera Company presents unique ‘promenade’ performances of Engelbert Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel. The production is a collaboration with the BA (Hons) Performance Design and Practice course of Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design (part of University of the Arts London), including KAA member Seyoung Jeong (정세영).
From English Pocket Opera Company’s website:
Come and join Hansel and Gretel on their journey into the fairytale forest as they meet a cuckoo, a ‘sandman’ and triumph over Rosey Lickspittle, the grimmest of all witches who wants to eat them after turning them into gingerbread. A ‘promenade’ operatic adventure for all the family the like of which you will never have had before. EPOC’s cast of professional soloists will lead you round Central St. Martin’s spectacular new building at Kings Cross (including the Platform Theatre, Studio Theatre and ‘Street’) through 8 scenes in 8 different locations designed by 8 up-and-coming young designers. Come and join the adventure!
Eight designers from Central St Martins were each commissioned to design one scene in the production, taking charge of the set, costumes and lighting design. KAA member Seyoung Jeong (정세영) is one of those designers, and is responsible for the first of the scenes.
