Korea is a divided country, South and North.
Since it is geographically surrounded by sea on three sides, and North Korea is in contact with China. I can’t go to other countries by land. It’s not an island, but it’s like an island, you have to take a boat and fly on an aeroplane to move to another place.
When I thought about New Zealand, I thought it was similar to South Korea in that it was an island country composed of North and South islands, although the reasons for the division were completely different.The geographical location of Wellington, which is located between the North Island and the South Island, where strong winds are created by the divide between the land masses, it felt very interesting.
In this performance, I will compare the journey of a person from an island (like a island) to the life of all of us.
Islands divided each for a reason, wind is made between the divided pieces, and all these small pieces make up the island. We are all pieces derived from one island.
Each person has a different weight and reason for living, but there are moments when everyone can’t avoid the wind blowing up against them.
In the middle of a split island, the pieces meet where the wind gathers strongly. Facing the inevitable wind, we meet the wind together.
We move with the wind, facing the wind straight on, not trying to avoid it.
After the performance, we don’t know if we can meet again in this place where the wind gathers.
We may or may not meet again one day.
Pawa runs on the contributions of our event goers and public funding.
We believe performance art should be assible to everyone, thats why majority of our shows are open to the public, however if you have funds to spare please consider contributing.
