The Smudge of Coral Drawing is a story about strange love that emerges, grows, merges, fractures, and disappears. One Jooyool focuses on the shapes of love created by genderless bodies and minute objects with added illusions akin to magic tricks. Bringing two performers onto the stage, this work creates originality and peculiarity purely through nonverbal gestures of love and small objects. Like a sharp needle piercing the soft heart-shaped cushion in a grandmother’s sewing box; like two sinking lovers falling in love for the first time; and like the future of our oceans where coral turns white as it dies—this performance lays bare the diversity and darkness of love.
Won has been working in Korea and abroad in a variety of fields, including performing arts research, theater, festivals, circus, and children’s plays. Won debuted in 2019 through DOOSAN ART LAB’s In and Out of the One: The Origin Story, which reflects the identity of her creative world. Her debut play explores the boundaries between reality and drama as well as the theatricality that connects the theater’s interior and exterior as a single space.
