Creepy Parade (Street performance)



'Creepy parade' is a street performance collaborative project.
This project is developed through the Unnatural Ordinary series which explores unnatural situations in ordinary society.

People are hiding emotions and living in society to go well with others.
On the subject of hidden emotions, sometimes people don't want to talk about it, because it can feel shameful, painful and tough.
Especially in this pandemic, people's emotions are overflowing in the house, in their body.
Releasing the hidden emotion, even temporarily, mixed up with everyone's emotions may create connections with others.

We can lose anything, and we find many things, that's the normal, constant movement of life.

Mental health is such a big wall between society and general people, but I know everybody can be struggling with life and that's part of it.
Creepy Parade has huge potential to be a trigger to cross the mental health wall in society.

Buried  Heart



       






Buried heart expresses how a heart buried in hard concrete has nowhere to go and waits for its owner to return.

It's a feeling that I trapped in my heart without telling anyone. Somewhere in my heart, it shines quietly like a heart buried in this concrete, waiting for someone to find it...

Rotating Human Structure


Society is spinning around and around...

The sounds of factory machines, cars traffic, people coming and going, crying, laughing, death and birth.

People continue to move rapidly every day with emotions and society.
Wake up in the morning, the night comes, and the morning comes again. It is 24 hours.

You may be crying when someone is smiling happy somewhere in the world. When you are full of happiness, the tears of someone you will never m

eet are falling.

No matter how hard and painful you feel through the night, even if you are sobbing, the morning will surely come ruthlessly.

Is it miserable? or is it happy?
What does it mean to keep spinning?
How long should I keep spinning?
Is it painful?

And in the end, it may not make sense.
At the same time, there is no night without dawn.

It will continue to spin today.

Has Expired










A heart that is no longer used.

Thoughts whose expiration has expired are abandoned and give off a bad smell...

Why was it discarded?
What was your feeling?
How did you feel that you were thrown away?
Can it be recycled? Or is it combustible waste?
Will it be here forever? Or will it be returned to the soil?

No one knows that anymore.
Abandoned heart.
Thoughts that never return.
