Performance Info

“Healthy but useless limbs even
incapable of reaching the grave…… Even dreams run out and fade away”

The time of disillusionment and
lethargy meets the portrait of ourselves in despair


The
performance finds a motif from the poem by Korean
poet Yeongtae Kim; written in the memory of the late poet Su-Young Kim on his
anniversary of death. In his poem, Yeongtae Kim praises Su-Young Kim as an
artist with a daring and rebellious spirit, while lamenting his own lethargy.


Those
who failed to enter their graves lose destination and hover in time and space
where life and death co-exist, like the coffins scattered on the stage. Coffin,
grave, wind, and opposing movement are the main components of the performance. Through
these four elements, it shows the sense of lethargy and despair of our
contemporaries living today.


will encourage us to find our own stark
faces; faces that lead the life in this age of despair.


 


Synopsis


A group of people appear carrying a coffin; seems laborious but
they are well-accustomed to it. They hover and stray around the dead bodies of
the victims. Even with no physical defects, they are incapable of hiding their
shameful faces. Thus they succumb to lethargy and wander aimlessly.


 


Company


Theatre Momggol


Theatre Momggol is part of the Momggol Group, along with the
Momggol Imagination Training Center that bridges the local residents with its
community, and the Arts and Culture Leader Ggol which specializes in designing
art projects. In its early years, Theatre Momggol gained a reputation for its productions
covering social issues by employing body and object, and has performed mainly
on stages outside of conventional theatres. The company never stops grafting
unfamiliar languages onto its works, taking risks by gathering minority artists
and bringing a sense of justice to the stage that our society has forgotten or
ignored.
