Theater Salad(, president: Park Kyongju), the first multicultural theater in Korea, was established in January of 2009 to seek a true meaning of cultural diversity through communication beyond a cultural boundary between migration and settlement.
Salad has created performances dealing with multicultural issues mainly and has staged performances two times or more a year regularly and 15 times or more outreach performances. So far, the theater has met about 100,000 audiences across the country through total 300 workshops and 270 performances. The theater was authorized as a social enterprise by the Labor Ministry in May of 2014 and has been recognized as the only theater that migrant artists are directly involved in creative works by the public.
Salad won Eulju Award for those who have been making efforts for gender equality (2009), Simcheong Filial Piety Award(2011), and Donga Multiculture Award together with LG(2017). In addition, the theater was designated as a beneficiary of The Export and Import Bank of Korea’s project for supporting migrants’ business creation, UNDP funds, GKL Foundation funds, The Export and Import Bank of Korea’s Hope Seed Project, Shinhan Bank’s Social Contribution Funds, Daum Foundation’s Cultural Diversity Funds, and subsidies of Seoul Cultural Foundation and Arts Council Korea.
Salad has consistently demonstrated multimedia live streaming performance based on real cases related to migrant workers, migrant women, refugees, etc. since 2011. Especially, Theater without Actor selected as one of Han PAC Newly Conceptual Performance Arts Series in 2013 gained people’s attention when the live streaming performance was staged in ARKO transformed into a live broadcasting studio.
Additionally, Salad has taken the lead in education for improving cultural diversity, creating multicultural musicals to introduce Asian cultures intensively based on the theater’s human network in Nepal, the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, Myanmar, etc.
