When COVID-19 broke out and the pandemic ensued, Bubble Dragon started working on combining shadow puppetry with bubbles to send hopeful messages to people suffering from the pandemic panic. In the meantime, he discovered that the colours of the bubble interacting with light and shadow looked like the Earth. He then moved on to environmental issues and created a new performance – Alone. In the year 2025, Alone is heading to Earth searching for new hope for the planet which gave him good memories.
Alone has been selected within the Assitej Korea Rookie programme and UNIMA Korea Mentoring programme for its further creative production process. It was premiered at Pumasi Arts Festival 2021 in Hwaseong, Korea as an officially invited project. It was also officially invited to 2022 No Strings attached, the biggest puppetry theatre festival held in Singapore in December 2022.
BUBBLE DRAGON, SEOUL, REPUBLIC OF KOREA
Bubble Dragon is the very first professional Bubble Artist in South Korea. He has been performing using bubbles for the last 20 years and searching for his own language and the texture of his works. In his career, he combined puppetry and bubbles as Bubble Dragon starting from 2012 with the show Bangwoolie’s nap traveling that brought rest, relaxation, and comfort to the audience through the medium of bubbles.
Bubble Dragon has been challenging himself to combine bubbles with various other forms such as puppetry, shadows, objects, mime, and others in order to become a better unique performer.
