Bibimbab Youth Theatre was founded in 2007 by Sookyung Hwang as a response to the dynamic shifts occurring in Korea’s artistic culture. Rearing a new generation of Korean actors, BYT is a Korean Traditional Musical Performer-centred movement dedicated to integrating modern influences while honouring Korea’s rich heritage. Taken from the name of a popular Korean dish, BYT combines parts of contemporary art and stirs them into traditional theatre, creating new recipes for Korea’s theatrical canon.
