ABSTRACT

This paper discusses how Ogwangdae mask dance play reflects the cultural environment of eachregion. Ogwangdae mask dance play is known to be formed as a result of the spread of ChogyeBammari bamboo entertainer’s performance over Yeongnam region. But this spreading theory hascertain limits in explaining for the historicity and local cultural characteristics of Ogwangdae maskdance play in spite of the feasibility of oral data. In this study, a critical point of view for the bambooentertainer origin theory was proposed. For this, the meanings of Ogwangdae birth tale, theparameter to enable performance and transmission of mask dance play, the playing yard compositionand the characteristics of characters were examined. The cultural environments of the Ogwangdaeregion focused in this paper were Beolsingut of the southern coast, professional entertainers’ hall inGeoje city, Jochang and military camp, etc. Additionally, it was clarified how the local culturalcharacteristics have been reflected in playing yard composition and story contents. This study showedthat Ogwangdae mask dance play was formed in the relationship between local indigenous maskdance play and mask dance play performed by the bamboo entertainers who were the wanderingclowns. And it was also clarified that story contents were changed into more emphasizing directionfor entertainment than for sacredness.
