Bahn

"he theatre-game starts from a text message through a mobile application. The message sender is a 17 year-old girl called "Bahn", a second generation immigrant. She asks audiences for help to find her way. Through her messages, she indicates the places she has passed and gradually reveals her untold identity. The places and milestones are related to Bahn’s personal memories and experiences and she gets younger as the audience passes by each spot. Originally Bahn delivers a story about a unique group of migrants that only exists in South Korea, North Korean immigrants. They are the same ethnic group and speak the same language and share traditions and history in slightly different ways. Therefore they can be absorbed into the society easier and quicker than other immigrants, especially younger generations. They would not be distinguished once they fix their accents unless they confess they are from the north. However, they tend to experience a certain period of confusion, and key stages of adjustment in the new environment until they complete their mental settlement. Bahn traces her story from present to the past to the moment she first arrived in South Korea. The features of streets in Prague will be interweaved into the story of Bahn.
