"Bongsan Talchum" Gosa Ceremony

Korean Mask Dance Dramas

"Bongsan Talchum" Gosa Ceremony

At the start of full-length mask dance drama performances a gosa ceremony is performed, led by senior members of the preservation association for the art. The masks are laid out around and behind an altar with candles, fruit, dried fish, glutinous rice cake, a boiled pig's head, and makgeolli (a milky fermented brew).
