Living statue performances will take place every Saturday from noon to 2 pm at the entrance of Haeundae Beach.
A living statue is a street performer who poses like a statue or mannequin, completely still, and makes sudden movements to entertain people who engage with him/her. They are often seen on the street in Europe and South America, however this is the first time for regular performances in Haeundae. The living statues are going to perform as painters, street musicians, violinists, and photographers.
Since April, Haeundae-gu has been training a street art group as part of an art industry job placement project. Seven citizens were recruited through auditions and were trained for four hours a day alongside professional mime performers. According to the response of residents after trial performances until August 16, Haeundae-gu will decide whether or not to continue the performances.
The street art group is highly acclaimed for its creativity and its performances are expected to attract tourists. The creation of cultural art jobs by Haeundae-gu is of special note, since most jobs traditionally provided by the local government have been placements in construction and other forms of physical labor.
