OFF THE CHORE by Sun Son Theatre

Performance / Taiwan
May 26, 2017 - May 28, 2017
Experimental Theater A (No. 21-1, Chung Shan South Road, Taipei)

"Few tasks are more like the torture of Sisyphus than housework, with its endless repetition: the clean becomes soiled, the soiled is made clean, over and over, day after day. The housewife wears herself out marking time: she makes nothing, simply perpetuates the present … Eating, sleeping, cleaning – the years no longer rise up towards heaven, they lie spread out ahead, grey and identical. The battle against dust and dirt is never won."--Simone de Beauvoir 

The performance combines with percussion, physical movement, little perspective and little humor inspired by daily chore with tears and laughter.
