TURBULENCE (Hoyoung Im)
The story of the creature is performed as intuitive way through dance and movement. The story of the human is only compounded with monologue. Concentrating neither on the story of the human nor the creature, the principal focus of this performance will pose the theatrical question to audience: “What makes us human”?
