Greetings from the festival director of BIPAF

With the enthusiastic support and interest of many people, the Busan International Performing Arts Festival is already celebrating its seventeenth festival. BIPAF has grown into a representative performing arts festival in Busan over the past 16 years, featuring a wide range of performances from classics to street plays.

This year's BIPAF has taken a new way to safely hold a festival in the Covid 19 era. BIPAF which has met a large audience every year will be held as an online festival this year. I'm a little afraid I have to take a new path that I haven't taken yet, but I'm also very excited. I hope this online festival will be an opportunity to meet and communicate with more audiences.

In addition, this year's BIPAF presents the regional win-win challenge 'Cheer up Busan!' for local art organizations suffering from the prolonged Covid 19. BIPAF is significant in that it provided artists with opportunities to perform is continuously disappearing due to Covid 19. We prepared exciting performances by the art organizations in Busan, including magic, juggling, circus, and Namsadang Nori.

We hope that BIPAF will give you comfort and revitalize your tired mind, and we would like to express our gratitude and support to everyone who enjoy the festival. In the future, the Busan International Performing Arts Festival will take the lead in creating a foundation for creating culture and arts through various attempts and promoting citizens' rights to enjoy culture.

With very best wishes,
the festival director, In-beom, Ko.
