Performance Info

How do we prove that a person is alive? Pain felt in the skin when cut; the scream produced when bones shatter; the agony felt when the heart is being ripped apart—all paradoxically prove that a person is alive. Inspired by the traditional Indian performance genre of kutiyattam, the production Quartet on Pain is a play that is set on an extremely restricted circular stage, and explores a life in which words are excised, one that is accompanied by pain that expressed solely through bodily suffering.. The story is structured around a dying whale that is trapped in endless suffering because of the words it has said, and Neokson, who grew up on the sounds of its agony now wanders in a search for the grueling sounds of pain. The play illustrates a cycle as it shows that suffering, which is evidence of life, becomes sound, that sound later becomes words, and those words again invoke suffering.


Production Details

Director
BAE, Yosup
The Performance Group Tuida is a performance group that formed in 2001. Aiming to create an open, environmentally friendly form of theater that constantly evolves, they release new plays every year. Through acting that combines the traditions of both Eastern and Western clowns, their plays are interfused with fantastic and creative puppets, masks and music. Their unique style is crafted through continuous experimentation in each play, and their Korean-yet-cosmopolitan style has earned high acclaim through international festivals in Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, the United States, and Ireland.

In June 2010, members of the group and their families moved their creative space and living space to an abandoned school in Hwacheon, Gangwon-do, and are in the process of exploring new possibilities of theater in a remote area.
