Korean premiere of Eugenio Barba, the founder of theatre anthropology and master of the theater!
Perpetuity of art works experienced through the embodiment of senses

About the performance

The 40 members of the Odin Teatret came from eleven countries and four continents. In The Chronic Life by Odin Teatret, thus, each actor uses all different languages. Even though various languages are used, the performance has no subtitles for the audiences. Instead, it aims to show the sincerity of the work by awakening senses of the audiences. The audiences follow the performance towards the end to encounter all the unexpected incidents.

Synopsis

In 2031, after the Third World War, people from different backgrounds who have lost their job and faced an economic crisis gather together in a city of Europe. A boy from Latin America is looking for his father who suddenly disappeared. The boy overlooks the well-known truth that our world and history are comparable to an incurable, chronic disease. Telling the boy to stop looking for his father, people advise him not to have ‘hope’, which is the greatest despair, paradoxically.

하이라이트 동영상
  • The performance is not meant to be fully understood rationally, but rather to open the senses, trigger empathy of the spectator, posing questions to which the answer is as personal as collective: a shared experience of learning how to see differently. Eugenio Barba points out the “gift of ambiguity and the experience of not grasping everything” that gives the possibility to a deeper understanding of feelings, the acceptance of things that are not graspable by knowledge, the dynamism of asking questions and searching.
