Face to Face
A Performance for a One-Year-Old? Our Children’s First Performance Experience!
The performance “Face to Face,” put together by Theater Ro.Gi.Narae, is intended for infants around the age of one.
Using puppets and objects around the theme of “face,” beloved by infants, “Face to Face” is a theatrical representation of the first human interaction, creating a world on stage where metaphors of nature greet each other and harmonize.
In this space of novel art installations, sounds, and movements, infants experience new stimuli and move through the space freely. The art of performances for infants is a novel idea in Korea,
but this is a chance to see the changes in your precious children before and after the performance in the National Asian Culture Center’s Playhouse!
Performance Structure
Before the Performance At the lobby, participants can meet with the actors and enter the venue under their guidance.
It is important to set aside some time for infants to adjust to the space!
During the Performance Infants and their accompanying guardians sit together onstage to watch the performance.
Infants are free to move around and
touch the objects used in the performance. The actors do not fret over whether the audience members are watching!
After the Performance Photos and playtime
Now that the infants have adjusted to the stage,
they have enough time to play on the stage for sensory development!
Audience review

  • “Any doubts I had about how seriously my six-month-old child would take the show were quickly dispelled as the performance began. My child responded to every actor’s gesture and followed the movements of the lights. I thought that my child would get bored or begin to cry, but that was a wrong assumption to make. The changes in sounds throughout the performance were impressive, and I enjoyed the rhythmic feel of the sounds that seemed to stimulate all five senses.”

    “My baby wasn’t old enough to reach out and touch the fabrics or puppets, but when the performer came up to my baby to interact, I found myself tearing up without knowing why. It was a moment that made me forget about the hard work of parenting and allowed me to appreciate the sound of my baby’s laughter. After the show, we went home, and my baby fell asleep quickly. Maybe it was all the new things that my baby saw in the performance.
    I hope that the first performance in your life will remain with you for a long time in your subconscious!”

  • “I didn’t know there was a performance like this, so before I came to the theater, I thought it would be like a live-action version of ‘Popopo’or other children’s shows on TV. I was surprised at how different it was. It didn’t grab my child’s attention with aggressively loud sounds or anything like that, and it was very relaxed and gentle throughout, which I think was really nice for my child. I want to raise my child without giving too many negative messages, but that isn’t always so easy. With this play, it felt like my child could go anywhere, and that was all right. As a mom watching that, I really liked it.”
Cast and Direction Theater Ro.Gi.Narae

Theater Ro.Gi.Narae was founded in 1997. Using the idea of “unlimited freedom of imagination,” a special rule for puppet theater, as an axis, the group engages actively with other fields of art to produce creative works of performances. In addition to stages in Korea, Theater Ro.Gi.Narae has been invited to many stages worldwide, including the World Festival of Puppet Theatres (Festival Mondial des Théâtres de Marionnettes, FMTM) in Charleville-Mézières, France, to showcase Korean puppetry on the world stage. They hope that their imagination, together with puppets, can give wings to the audience members’ hearts like magic spells. Puppet theater is the purest form of magic, and they dream of moments where everyone can be happy with the power of that magic. “Puppet theater originates from imagination, realized through the hands of puppeteers, and must be given life from the hearts of the actors before they can stand on stage.”

Advisor Jackie Jang (Director/Neuroscientist of the Neuroscience Arts Center in Good Moonhwa Hospital, Acting Coach)

“The experience of sharing sensations and perception becomes data that makes up the social brain for new communications. Performances for infants provide sensory experiences that cannot often be found at home, such as physical movement of a diverse group of people, multiple sensory and perceptual activities through art, and responses to stimuli together.”
