How do we describe our own trauma? Articulate our own pain? By examining this specific, painful piece of Korean history, Moksori/Voice also hopes to raise conversation about the larger issues of sexual violence, exploitation and oppression, still globally pertinent today. Derived from diverse sources such as real interviews with former comfort women, Korean resistance poetry, firsthand accounts, military documents, online posts and using various disciplines including movement, toy theatre, sensory stimuli and traditional Korean performance techniques, Moksori/Voice is a vivid theatrical collage on the courage to speak up about our own nightmares.
