Presented by Dublin Fringe Festival, Project Arts Centre, and CAMPO.

A bunch of talkative rice cookers take you on a journey through the last 20 years of Korean history.

One day when his electric rice cooker informed him that his meal was ready, artist Jaha Koo experienced a deep sense of isolation. “Golibmuwon” (隕ꍲꓩ낅) is an untranslatable Korean word expressing the feeling of helpless isolation. A major economic crisis in South Korea had a devastating impact on the young generation to which Jaha belongs. This show combines personal experience with political events and reflections on happiness, economic crises and death.
