The 10th Gwacheon Hanmadang Festival
"The Fragrance of Time" to Be Presented
By Polish Embassy in Seoul on Sept. 22-24
KTO theater's "The Fragrance of Time"

"The Fragrance of Time," a Polish theatrical impression referring to the childhood of its creator Jerzy Zoń, the director. The show is an open-air theatre and it tells a story about childhood with fear, cruelty of war and love without any words. An hour of this nostalgic performance will take the audience back into the past with the feeling of leafing through an old family photo - album. This feeling of the nostalgic past is stressed by the overwhelming classical hits as "The Nutcracker," "Symphony No.5 in E minor" and "Capricio Italien" by Tchaikovsky.

"The public expressed the enchantment with the poet-ics, the design, the space and a tremendous momentum of the show (...)." — Tadeusz Szyłłejko Gazeta Warmii i Mazur

"A little bit of sepia, a crumb of melancholy, a gram of nostalgia and an inevitable touch of sentimentality." — Pawel Głowacki Dziennik Polski

KTO production of "The Fragrance of Time"
Directed by Jerzy Zoń
Music by Peter Tchaikovsky

KTO Theatre was founded by a group of graduates from Jagiellonian University in Krakow. Since 1985 the theatre has produced several street performances. Traditional stage experience together with street theatre experiments constituted a specific language of the theatre, where the meaning is expressed by actor's body, voice, movement, but also music and occasionally a few words. KTO Theatre derives its work style and repertoire from the tradition of medieval wandering troupes. Due to all these factors the theatre's performances win a spontaneous and warm applause from all kinds of audiences. Theatrical archetypes and emotional character of the performances break all possible barriers between the group and spectators, both in little towns and large festival halls.
