'Nomads on Vacation: a musical in seven parts' is a community based performance created by Royce Ng and Daisy Bisenieks performed at Kunsthalle Gwangju. It is a site-specific work structured as an imaginary conference convened to discuss the past, present and future of the Asian Culture Complex (ACC) in Gwangju, South Korea. After writing a series of texts based on their research into the ACC, we invited young, non-professional and first time performers from the Gwangju public to creatively interpret our ideas into a performance which incorporates elements of amateur theatre, the musical and science-fiction to raise questions and create public discussion about the ACC.
