Arts Event: Next Stop: North Korea
March 1 @ 8:00 am - March 24 @ 5:00 pm$20
How far would you travel to help other people? How many compromises would you make?
In this new one-man show Next Stop: North Korea, acclaimed playwright, performer and IPS Project Director and Associate Fellow John Feffer (Krapp’s Last Powerpoint, The Bird, Edible Rex, and Stuff) brings audiences as close to North Korea as they can get without a visa and an airplane ticket. Based on his visits to the country and the work he did there, Feffer explores the challenges of doing good in a morally ambiguous environment. He takes you inside Kim Il Sung’s mausoleum, up and down the Tower of the Juche Idea, out to the North Korean countryside, and into the hearts and minds of North Koreans themselves.
Follow along with this “brilliant writer and performer” (Washington City Paper) as he brings you on an alternately funny, sobering, and thrilling trip to North Korea.
