Fireman is a nonverbal performance that revolves around one of society's everyday heroes, the firefighter. Fireman tells a story about the challenges trainees face to become firefighters. As there is no dialogue and the story is told through a mixture of dynamic performance styles such as parkour, b-boying, and pole dancing, Fireman is a great show for international participants to attend. Fireman is on an open run at the Myungbo Art Hall, which is a 10-minute walk away from Myeong-dong. The show is popular with both locals and foreigners as it encourages audience interaction and offers other interesting elements.
