wooow, thaank you all for your helpful replys! I really appreciate that!!

and yeah, sorry I meant "ch´angjak p´ansori" ("newly created p´ansori").
Actually I wanted to write about Ch´angguk instead of ch´angjak p´ansori because for that there were more english literature available (especially from Killick). Also I  wanted to analyse in this context the piece of Achim Freyer "Mr. rabbit and the dragon king". But it was really demotivating to work on something I am not convinced about. (In my opinion a musical-like form that ruines the real essence of a minimalistic p´ansori performance)

That´s why I decided to write about ch´angjak p´ansori, but not the ones that are sung in a new way accompanied by an orchestra. I wanted to focus on the ones, that keep the "one"-man show shorted to 30minutes with updated storys. 
And for those I could not really find monographs (in a western language) about. A few articles are not enough. I was hoping for 70% english literature and 30% korean..
For korean literature our library system in Germany, Hamburg is too bad, so that I don´t get free access to these, except of RISS. The database of KISS, DBPIA, papersearch.net and Jstor are not available for me. Or is there a trick how I can get access for that from here? 

I read about the Lee Jaram piece. Jan Creutzenberg wrote about the aspects from Brecht in this piece. Really interesting.
But I wanted to focus more on the "ch´uimsae" and the changes of the room constellation that affects the audience negatively in this context; the difference and common ground of "traditional" and "newly created" p´ansori.
Anyway that might not be enough for a 80 pages work. So I have to work on my problem statement. 
I might also contact a few of you directly.
So far, thaaank you all!

She has been performing this for years, and in 2011 she and her team revised it and performed a series of shows in the fall.  It is, basically, a one-person show but accompanied by the typical buk with the addition of percussion ensemble and a trio reminiscent of the Greek chorus.  If you type  사천가 into google search, up will come news stories, video, and reviews.  It may be an interesting case study, or at least a starting point in discovered the great diversity of performances labeled '창작 판소리'--you will discover it is not a 'genre' but a general category referring to newly created pansori-esque performances.
