Tell me your story in this room / One-to-one (On-going)

Through poetic manipulation of languages, the intimate interaction between the performer and audience construct a novel and safe space, allowing us to fully recognise one as a unique individual.

 

This is a study to see what languages do to us. This is an investigation on how to be free from ourselves. This is an on-going trial to eliminate discrimination.

As the sky is getting dark, the bamboo cutter starts to make his way out of the bamboo forest and back to the village. He reaches the river and saw a bamboo shoot. Glowing. Out of curiosity, he chops open the plant and saw a miniature girl inside. He picks her up in his palm, brings her home and raises her as his own with his wife.

A month later, the girl grows into the most beautiful lady in the village, attracting noblemen from the surrounding four countries standing court her. Noblemen argue, then battle and fight. 

Amongst all the chaos, the girl starts to glow and ascents into the full moon slowly. The bamboo cutter and his wife can do nothing, but watch her leaving. 

This is the legend of the Bamboo Princess, Princess Kaguya.
