Atrium 360°


Throughout her career as a traditional Korean singer (“sorikun”), Lee Narae has reflected on and problematized the representation of women in traditional pansori, a form of musical storytelling that developed under the influence of Confucian culture. In exploring this art form, she sheds new light on Byeongangsoe-ga—a pansori narrative that is a particularly strong example of patriarchal values—by shifting the perspective to the ill-fated female character, Ong-nyeo, and recreating this work through a variety of artistic styles. Lee Narae combines a wide range of sounds with spoken word and transforms them through music, seamlessly incorporating other musical influences. She thus inherits the tradition of pansori while recharging it with contemporary creative energy.
