PROGRAM NOTE
May is hardly ever able to come out of her room or out of her world, even when there’s a fire next door. Little things can drive May into memories fraught with violence, and then she hurts herself, overwhelmed by the pressure of unusual situations. But via a magician′s performance that allows her to leave, she can accept the changing landscape. An unpredictable reality is a world of fear, but an unpredictable performance of magic is a source of wonder. However, one cannot expect changes in reality to come magically. May has to witness, endure and accept the painful experiences by herself. Although drawn towards magic, she has scars and memories of violence that can’t be overcome magically. Meanwhile, May′s father watches her helplessly, venting his anger through fighting. Like May, her father is caught up in violence. And as much as May changes, so does her father. As May progresses, her father′s fighting also slows down. This also reveals the meaning and process of controlling violence. (Chai HeeSuk)
