Can we be

on a stage


The Survival Diary

2020.3.12 ~ ??

Concept & Direction : Park Kyongju  Production: Salad Theater 2020

Early march in 2020, some Salad members couldn’t help but be stuck in their home due to COVID 19 pandemic. Some members cannot visit their home while others cannot come back to Korea. Is it feasible for them to stage a performance this November? Video journals that they have been sending develop a storyline. This is a live and vivid artwork. Can every one of us survive to the last? Can we be on a stage alive?  The Survival Diary, the ways for the multicultural theater Salad to overcome the pandemic.

Collective Artists: Park Kyong Ju, Gil Hizon, Lorna de Mateo, Dahou Triomph, Nicky France, Sarangerel Sukbataar

Video Journal

'Survival Diary'

The project started when the members spent time in their home countries anxiously, waiting for their entry to Korea during the COVID 19 pandemic. The members began to send their video journals proving their survival to the director as part of this project. Based on the videos, the director is writing a script for performance. The plot has changed in line with their lives. In the worst scenario, the reality that we are likely to die unluckily has started to be reflected in the work as it is. The members have been sending about 2-miniute video journals continuously since June. (Go to Youtube channel)
