A year is made up of 365 days. A month is 30 days.
Days pile up as they pass by, and that becomes a lifetime. I look carefully into his days, and find myself in them.
※ After being screened on the Virtual PAMS, you could watch the showcase on the website at 20:30 of the day of the screening.
The show presents a routine day in the life of a tired salary man. Returning home
exhausted every day, he ends his day by dreaming of a happy childhood. His boss’s
obsession with results whips the man like a circus acrobat. Still, this is the life of a man
who has to wag his tail in a servile manner. It is the routine of someone who has
nothing special about him, but this might be representative of the lives of ordinary
people. The actors and puppets play the same characters together and images are
maximized through props and puppets. The work is poetic with lyrical music and has an
exquisite harmony of powerful props, videos, mimes, and puppetry.
