Culture of Life Society aims to provide cultural experiences for the celebration of life by all. By sharing experiences and knowledge about various subjects that celebrate and promote life, people find beauty in life, nature, and our world. When people see the beauty of harmony and realize the value of not only human existence but the bigger picture that we exist in, it can bring changes in the way we view the world and the way our society interacts with nature. In Culture of Life Society, discussions focus on how culture can contribute to the celebration of life and harmonious existence with nature, and members hold events on various interests and fields.
People for Earth launched the Earth Eye Art platform last year and presented the first play Boat People from December 10th to 11th.
Boat People is set in the near-future, the earth, which is all submerged in water due to climate change and contains the story of the small choices of the characters.
Director YoungDuk Kang said, “I tried to capture the attitude toward our life surrounded by numerous ironies in this work.” He emphasized that all our small choices are in contact with our lives and even the fate of the earth.
This work, designed to explore the way of living in earth community, was produced in various compositions such as jazz performances, violin performances and sword dances.
This is the first regular performance of the People for Earth based on their studies.
