ACC Wednesday Theater's ninth performance featuring a play of ACC original production
<I Wasn't There in Gwangju>
Through the Screen
ACC 수요극장
I was not in Gwangju. But I will remember Gwangju of May 1980.
The upcoming ACC Wednesday Theater will feature <I Wasn't There in Gwangju>, ACC’s original production that was created in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the May 18th Democratic Uprising in 2020.

This performance conveys how the May 18th Democratic Uprising commenced from the main gate of Chonnam National University. It has been highly acclaimed for enabling the audience to picture the history and feel the performance through interactive activities. In remembrance of the day that should never be forgotten, we invite you to the history.
These people just went up to heaven. They’ll come back as white snow the next time they come down.
I'll make a snowman out of the snow. Then, I'll take the snowman home and let it sleep in the warmest spot.
No lightning or gunshot will tear the warmed up snowman.
The next time they’re here, they will come back in warm springtime, as white snow.
 
- Excerpt from <I Wasn't There in Gwangju>
From the Director
To have been there and to not have been there. It makes a huge difference. It would not be easy to perform the true event on stage if one was really there. It would be frustrating to fail to deliver every part of what really happened. If one was not there, it would be easier to theatrically act on stage. One would even have the courage to confront the truth beyond facts. It is possible only when one was not present. It is fine if the story cannot convey everything. The story is sufficiently understandable.
We believed that a fiction story can reveal a ray of truth. Just like the way Hamlet wrote a play to reveal his uncle’s murder.
That is why theaters are sometimes more truthful than facts. In a theater, a theatrical truth must be performed. That is because stating facts does not directly lead to theatrical understanding.
 
Nothing is worthless. Everything we loved, nothing is worthless. This was inspired by patriotic martyr Lee Jeong-yeon who died at the age of 20.
The story is about what happened in Gwangju for 10 days, from May 18 to 27 of 1980.
- Excerpt from a writing of Director Koh Sun-woong of <I Wasn't There in Gwangju>
