    Yeo-Jin Lee


    Lee debuted in 2011, currently involves in field of Korean theater as play writer, preparing her path as a drama theology researcher as well as being in Ph. D program. She is definitely considered as one of younger writer in thirties with prolific action in Seoul(Korea)’s theatrical field. Producing seven pieces on stage since her first debut, during six years, she had played her role passionately as writer.
     

    The significant characteristic of her play is based on the form of black comedy, sci-fi allegorism (Quantum mechanical reasoning) or modified epic theater, in order to satirize and emphasize the dexterous system of our society. Taking the social issue with gravity, but still, she seeks to write in novel motifs and transformation from classical play script. Her current focus lies on the issue of refugee, social division, wars, political corruption, and the way that discrepant system of Korean government deals with those contestations.

    about NONDA{PLAY}
    NON 論 DA 多 {PLAY} is a one-day inter-media lecture project that promotes the discourse of contemporary art in Asia and Europe. The idea encompasses the multiplicity of the word ‘nonda’ – in Chinese(論多) it can mean ‘to have various discussions’, and in Korean(논다) it means ‘playing’ or ‘to play’. Since 2014, NON 論 DA 多 {PLAY} has formed a platform for a diverse and innovative community through various forms – an interplay of sound, movement and vision. NON Berlin’s previous NON 論 DA 多 {PLAY} projects can be viewed through the website [www.nonberlin.com/nonda].
