Running Ghost Tour / Itaewon is mobile, disruptive, noisy and absurd. Part guided tour, part ceremony, part Happening, each tour – running through a busy night time city centre and red light area – includes approximately 10 people and works to the accompaniment of sound, movement and graphics. Actions or amateur reenactments are performed at 8 locations where crimes by U.S. personnel were committed during the past 15 years.
