People For Earth


People for Earth creates cultural and artistic endeavors to actualize an ecological lifestyle. Through encounters and expressions in diverse art forms such as theater, poetry, music, cinema, dance, and design, we hope to reawaken our life sensibility and embody the original form of life. Art for Earth offers a chance to re-evaluate the relationship between humans and the earth through a new type of narrative and redefines and creates ecological art through a variety of art creation initiatives.

2022 c 〈Move for Harmony〉

People for Earth moved from Samcheong-dong to Gyeongnidan-gil.
Many objects and stories moved together along with People for Earth
So did its people. 
Yet the Earth had not arrived. 
In waiting for Earth, people sung, hoping that the Earth was willing to get along. 
But the Earth had a problem. 
It was no longer pure or complete but damaged. 
Ji-an witnesses a painful crawl, by the damaged Earth, 
slowly to the people. 
As the Earth crawls, Ji-an's heart does as well. 

To society, Ji-an mutters, “the Earth has come. It was not what we thought it was.
Why do you know and ignore it? Why do you do this when you know it's important?” 

Ji-an is wounded, like the Earth. Their pain is shared, and Ji-an’s wounds move to the Earth, bringing warm wind to blow over them.

We will all move.

Behind the Production 

All motion used in ‘Move for Harmony’ can be categorized into three big sections which convey the primary philosophical elements we think are significant regarding a future of co-existence between Earth and mankind. 

1) Encounter 
- The encounter is the starting point for every moment of change; without any encounters, change cannot occur. 
- To encounter anything, movement is necessary - after all, two stationary objects would not be able to encounter each other. 
- Encounters are transient moments. They cannot be re-experienced- after one encounter, we move on to another moment, another encounter. 

2) Control 
- Losing control and balance entail great consequences and often, loss. 
- Problematically, humans do not know how to control themselves
- There is a dire need for control in all relationships, between the Earth and man, between an individual and others, even between an individual and their own self. 

3) Connection 
- Everything is interconnected with everything else; any individual’s life and their actions, no matter who they are, can impact countless other connected lives. 
- Death does not mean the end of all- as it also leads to the creation of countless other lives.
