Pansori (판소리) is a unique tradition of story-singing originating in South Korea, in which a solo vocalist, accompanied by a single barrel drum called buk, performs all the roles, as well as the narration. In 2003, UNESCO recognized pansori as a Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.


A longtime professor of Korean language, literature, and performance studies at The Ohio State University, Dr. Chan E. Park (박찬응) is one of the foremost exponents of pansori in North America, and endeavors to create a vibrant engagement between performer and audience (the "pan" 판 in pansori).


For her concert, Park will treat audience members to a bilingual performance (in Korean and English) of "Sugungga" (수궁가 / 水宮歌, Song of the Underwater Palace), an ancient fable in which a turtle uses trickery to lure a wily hare to the undersea palace of the Dragon King.


The reception will feature sujeonggwa, traditional Korean ginger-cinnamon-persimmon punch, served at no additional charge.


About the artist:


Dr. Chan E. Park began studying pansori singing in Korea in the mid-1970s, learning from three master performers: Ch’ông Kwônjin (an Intangible Cultural Treasure of South Korea), Sông Uhyang (heir to the rank of Intangible Cultural Treasure), and Han Nongsôn (heir to the rank of Intangible Cultural Treasure), and also studied komungo sanjo, traditional drumming, and drum dance.





She has given lectures and performances at numerous university programs, Asian and Korean cultural centers, and museums in the U.S., Korea, and elsewhere around the world. She directs the Lee Korean Performance Research Program at Oho State University, and serves as producer and artistic director of OSU's Annual Korean Wind and Stream Performance Event.




Park holds a Ph.D. in East Asian languages and literatures from the University of Hawaii, and has taught at Ohio State University since 1995. As a scholar, she has published widely about pansori and other aspects of the Korean literary and performance tradition. Her more recent activity involves the creation of new bilingual/"pansoritized" plays for stage performance, several of which she has directed at theaters in the U.S. and internationally.
