Andong Mask Dance Festival

Words by Paul Dodson

For many locals, South Korea's, Andong City is believed to be the cradle of Korean civilisation, a window into 5,000 years of Korean culture. Each October at Andong's, Hahoe Folklore Village, the Andong Mask Dance Festival takes centre stage. It's a highly ritualistic, cultural showcase that continues Korea's rich mask dance tradition. A tradition in which dance troupes perform mask dance dramas that historically provided social commentaries.
