Going a bit off topic here, but it’s for your own good. This coming Sunday, March 31 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Flow in Itaewon the above extravaganza will be taking place, looking at color in a way you’ve never looked at it before. I’m talking seeing it through a prism through a prism through a prism. Also, yours truly will be performing.
So what is The Encyclopedia Show exactly? I’ll let the inimitable (and show organizer) Lauren Bedard explain:
In its mission to obfuscate fact and fallacy, the Encyclopedia Show-Seoul is back! To refresh your memory, the Encyclopedia Show-Seoul, brings some of the most talented poets, painters, and performance artists in the Seoul community to create an artist’s interpretation of an encyclopedia installment.
In the past, this show has taught you about the polar bears and tooth paste, werewolves, bathtub moonshine and the dangers of sex in hot air balloons. This time around, The Encyclopedia Show-Seoul ret
urns with a vengeance and a freight truck full of crayons to illustrate the wonders and mysteries of color.
Did you ever wonder why it’s not easy being green? Why you should be incredibly jealous of mantis shrimp? Why the song “I Can Sing A Rainbow” is completely lost on dogs? or why Isaac Newton enjoyed poking himself in the eye with cutlery on rainy days during the plague? If your answer is yes(or no) to any of these questions, I beseech you to join us!

Will be performing what? I’m intrigued.
My piece was on color blindness. It involved Detroit, Ronald Reagan, bananas, and arson.
I just have to say that I’m so glad to really find a blog about Seoul that is still active! Thank you for this blog 🙂
