Our ‘Answer’ for the world where the answers have disappeared, and for the people who wait for the answers

About the performance

This work is the answer for the people waiting for the answers, and also is a sincere greeting for the world where the answers have been disappeared. During the process of production, we drew a question like drawing a picture. We sometimes bring a question of another question. We then continue bringing next questions about the former ones. Amid innumerable questions that have been disappeared, we want to search for ‘the Answer’ on behalf of you: right here, right now, with our entire body.

Intention of the Choreography

The world is turning from a place that cannot answer to a place that does not answer. In other words, it used to be a place that could not ask questions but now, it is becoming a place filled only with questions. We would like to see and hear the true questions and answers with sincere goals, not just those for “whatever.” In this way, we would like everyone, including you and me, to move even a little bit toward the brighter side. In short, what we want to express is the human body that embraces all the texts, words and the meanings mentioned above.
