This is the most inventive and playful production I've seen this year. At That Time Byeon by Korean Theatre Haddangse is intriguing. How will they tell a detective story in a small space and in their second language? By recreating a silent film with foley techniques (live sound effects). Not just mime because that might put some people off. They create so many effects in telling the story, it's a challenge to know where to look. It's very funny and impeccably performed by this tight team. I loved the self-deprecating intro - "just tech" - as the audience enter, as it gives the impression that they aren't quite ready before they deliver a precise and engrossing show. There is so much imagination in the visuals and sound. By the way, Byeon is the Korean name of the maid who is murdered, also known as Maria by the Japanese colonisers, so there is political history in here too. Don't miss this show, it's going to sell out!
