Research visit to South Korea (2015)

XTRAX has been developing valuable relationships with leading promoters and festival directors from South Korea.

In October 2015, the XTRAX team attended the Hi Seoul Festival, supporting the presentation of Wired Aerial Theatre’s As The World Tipped, for which XTRAX provides producer services. XTRAX also hosted a stand at the Performing Arts Market Seoul (PAMS) – an international marketplace for performing arts.

XTRAX was invited to speak at the “New changes and tasks of street arts festivals” Conference as part of the Hi Seoul Professional programme and attended various professional meetings.

The XTRAX team hosted a stand at the Performing Arts Market Seoul (PAMS) which is one of the main arts marketplaces of East Asia and attended many professional events activities, meeting with dozens of organisations, artists and other professionals from Korea, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Vietnam, Singapore, Taiwan, India, Australia, Canada, Finland, USA, Spain, France, Denmark and Norway.

A delegation of Korean festivals will be invited to attend the Greenwich+Docklands International Festival (GDIF) in 2016 & 2017 with a view to developing stronger relationships with the Korean sector in the lead up to the “UK-Korea Season 2017-18 – Creative Futures” where we hope to present a number of UK outdoor artists as part of some of the major Korean arts festivals, and reciprocally present Korean artists as part of the GDIF programme.
