JAHA KOO - [CUCKOO]

maa 24/10/2016 > woe 02/11/2016

One day in spring 2015, while eating a meal, it occurred to Jaha that he would be quite satisfied if he could lead his life making money fair and square, feed himself with that money and sleep comfortably. But the reality he has witnessed all his life was 고립무원(孤立無援) — which means ‘isolation without help.’ Then suddenly, his rice cooker, Cuckoo talked to him “Cuckoo has finished cooking rice. Please stir the rice.” Cuckoo is a Korean-style electric rice cooker designed to boil or steam rice for human consumption. This was how theatre maker Jaha Koo started [CUCKOO], his new performance.
