Director's Statement

The world conquered by wind. That violent wind fleet and cannibalistic school of sharks, tinged with blue. My bladder, reflexively swelling up. Today’s battle is tense. I forebode it. Therefore, the brilliant dance of agony now unfolds, and I tell sorrow to look over here since I dance along your rhythm—look at my flexible arms and legs, thoroughly tamed by your rhythm during my whole life. 
– Seung-ja Choi “Dance of Agony”
