Olive & Jjinkong Theater

Title of Performance: A Song of the Boyar

Country: South Korea

''Boyar' means 'wind' in Rohingya. It symbolizes refugees who wander around the world like the wind, and it has the meaning of the song “The Wind,” a storyteller who hears and tells the stories of suffering children in the world. This is a story where a girl named 'Ria' becomes friends with a girl named Kusi, a refugee who appears in her space of life. In the complex social situation of adults, they are recognized as 'invaders', and gradually from prejudice, children show curiosity through play, interested in each other, and newly share the foundation of life together. However, the villagers and their older brothers treat the Rohingya as prejudices and are negative about their impact on their lives. In the meantime, Soon the monsoon falls and each person's inner time passes for a long time. The monsoon ceases and they reunite. And Lea suggests planting mango tree seeds together.
