disOriented

disOriented tells the story of Ju Yeon, an immigrant living in New York City, who has distanced herself from her Korean roots. When a sudden crisis hits her family, she must return to Korea and face the parents and the life she abandoned long ago. Experimental in form, non-linear in narrative, and punctuated with contemporary Korean fan dancing, disOriented melds dance with text until the play explodes into a percussive song of voices and movement.
