The performance is a public artistic performance to ask ourselves if we forget any of our neighbors in the age of pandemics. Live streaming performance that Survival Diary co-created by the Salad members will be completed by residents and migrants, the performance audience. Salad will demonstrate the performance titled Breathe!, connecting with Theather’s artists who are currently staying in the Philippines, Mongolia, and Korea, via Zoom. A live broadcasting studio will be located in an open theater of Marronnier Park, and a film shot by the broadcasting team and Zoom video will be edited in real-time to be broadcasted via Theater Salad’s Youtube channel. We’re inviting 30 audiences who will join the Zoom video conference. We’ll show highlights of survival diaries sent by Salad members so far, too.

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?
