“If you want to hunt a tiger you must enter its cave first.”

Dr. 박병선 proved Korea was the first place in the world where moveable metal type was used for printing. This collection, also referred to by its shortened name “Jikji” , was printed in 1377, 78 years earlier than the Gutenberg Bible. UNESCO honored it by including it in its World Heritage listing in 2001.

Theatre Amoeba has been researching Jikji in Cheongju, South Korea for two years where Denise Rinehart works as a theatre professor and artistic director for Theatre Amoeba. Over time Amoeba has developed an imaginative physical work using choral storytelling, mask, and the poetry of objects that tells the tale of an ambitious young woman working at the National Library of France who discovers a book- but not just any book.

Denise Rinehart (Wisconsin, USA)- Denise is a Lecoq based devising theatre artist and pedagogue. Theatre has led her throughout the world including USA, England, France, Indonesia, Korea, Philippines and Poland and her plays have been performed in England, Italy, Morocco, Poland, Korea and the USA.
