Video design and animation for Mia Chung’s surreal play in its UK premiere in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs. As they attempt to flee the Best Nation in the World, North Korean sisters Minhee and Junhee are torn apart at the border. Utilising projections on a playful hexagonal set by Jon Bausor, they travel through deep wells, Kimjongilia fields, ear-ie forests and even encounter a *rice orchestra*. Directed by Royal Court Associate Director Richard Twyman.
Format: 2-channel HD animation, approx. 90 min.
