Een beroemde Nederlander in Korea is Hendrik Hamel. Hij leed schipbreuk met het schip “ De Sperwer” in Korea rond 1653.De koreanen wilde de bemanning van het schip niet laten gaan, ze werden goed behandeld maar wel vastgehouden in Korea.Na 13 jaar wisten Hamel en zijn mannen te ontsnappen en keerden via Japan weer terug naar Nederland, waar hij zijn avontuur opschreef.Onder andere hierdoor werd Korea in het westen bekend. Dit was het begin van contact tussen Korea en “het Westen” met handel, religie.militaire invasies, het kapitalistische systeem en de westerse populaire cultuur.

De performance ‘Come Ashore’ is de verbeelding van de westerse invasie van Korea. Op het strand landden de protagonisten van de handel, religie, het leger, en de westerse cultuur.Een non, een soldaat, Hendrik Hamel, Ronald mc Donald, Hidding (beroemde nederlandse voetbalcoach in Korea), Elvis Presley etc. “Come Ashore’

A famous Dutchman in Korea is Hendrik Hamel. He was shipwrecked with the ship “De Sperwer” in Korea around 1653. The locals did not want to let the crew of the ship go. After 13 years, Hamel and his men managed to escape and returned to the Netherlands where he wrote down his adventure. Partly because of this, Korea became known in The West. This was the beginning of contact between Korea and ‘The West’ with trade, religion, military invasions, the capitalist system and western popular culture.

The performance ‘Come Ashore’ is the representation of the western invasion of Korea. On the beach landed the protagonists of trade, religion, the military, and Western culture.
We see a nun, a soldier, Hendrik Hamel, Ronald McDonald, Mr. Hidding (famous Dutch football coach in Korea), Elvis Presley etc.

‘Come Ashore’ is an exchange project between Quartair and Nine Dragon Heads. See also ‘Meeting Downhill‘ with Korean artists in The Hague.
