All events and workshops are 20,000 won.
There might be a discount for multiple events and groups but we don't know that. Inquire with the festival on 02-3574-2210 and let us know if you find out anything.

1. You can use the Arko Arts Center website to pay via Interpark, but you'll need to register for that.
2. Call Interpark on 1544-1555 and give them your Check (Debit) Card number.
3. Call the festival on 02-3674-2210 or 02-3674-3310 and pay by bank account transfer on an ATM.
4. Go to Arko Arts Theatre before the event and pay at the office which is above the small auditorium. Might be the easiest option. The information desk is not at the front (that's the security man) but near the small auditorium.

All the performances are in the Arko Arts Theatre that's within meters of Hyehwa station exit 2 on the left, a large red brick building. All the workshops are in a smaller theatre that's nearby.

The Seoul International Improvisation Dance Festival will be held from April 4 to 11 at the Arko Arts Theater in Jongno. Tickets for performances and workshops are 20,000 won. For more information, visit www.improvisation.co.kr or call (02) 3674-2210.
