Okay, this is one of the strangest things I have run across in ages — Monster Ballet. That is, ballet using heavy machinery and construction equipment. From 9 to 9:30, Aug. 9-12, you can watch this bizarre dance of industrial grace down at the Riverside Park in Yeouido. With choreography by Kim Yong-geol of the Paris Opera Ballet, it certainly sounds like one an event with more than a little potential for fun.
Monster Ballet is occurring as part of the latest Hi Seoul Festival. Which now is held four times a year. Once for each of Korea’s four seasons. Really.
Okay, I am no fan of the Hi Seoul marketing ploy. But seriously, big machines dancing? I’ll check that out.
