CUCKOO

Jaha Koo CAMPO

An unusual and darkly comedic theatre event featuring three talkative rice cookers and their owner, sharing a deeply personal story about the pressures of modern Korean society. Jaha Koo and his telerobotic rice cookers take us on a journey through the last 20 years of South Korean history, revealing the layers of damage done to the people’s psyche after 1997’s major economic crisis. Spliced with frenetic montages of a society under pressure, Cuckoo is a very rare but honest, heartfelt and dreamlike first-hand account of life in modern South Korea. Supported by
