bout the performance

The play depicts plainly and dynamically what happened at Brothers Home in Busan, Korea in the 1980’s during the military regime. Closely combining the elements of documentary and drama, the performance arouses the audiences’ interest and dramatic speed. The performance tries to keep the audiences away from ethical or sentimental approaches to the work, but it enables the audiences to focus on the truth hidden behind the incident.

Synopsis

One day, a boy is forced to go to Brothers Home with his sister, not knowing the reason. Starting with the boy’s point of view, the play expands to the perspectives of the different people taken to the interment camp. The people who keep their legal status as citizens were taken to the place and interned in there which is in fact illegal. This was to fulfill the purpose of the military regime and to satisfy the interest of corrupt local officials and people who obey to them. Inside this place, people were imprisoned, beaten and forced to work. Under these circumstances, hundreds of people died and were buried secretly. The play asks how such a tragic thing happened to him and how it could happen, and who is responsible, in a very intriguing way.

  • “몽환적이고 그로테스크한 분위기를 배우들의 움직임으로만 기괴한 장면으로 연출하고 표현해 원작 소설의 틈새를 무대로 형상화 시켰다.”

  • “부분 조명과 조명의 강약, 강아지 인형, 백화점 제화코너의 구두 소품 등은 물론 스프레이의 사용 등 세세한 부분 하나하나, 의인화 된 고양이 출연자, 일인다역의 출연자의 연기를 빈틈없이 연출한 연출가의 기량이 감지되는 공연이다.”
