A nonverbal puppet show about an ingenuous child named Dallae and her ordinary family, whose lives are interrupted by Korean War (1950–1953).
Art Stage San's Dallae Story is a nonverbal puppet show about an ingenuous child named Dallae and her ordinary family whose lives are interrupted by Korean War (1950–1953). The piece does not directly discuss the war itself, but rather portrays the efforts of a family to overcome the hardships of wartime in a fairy tale-like fantasy. The story is expressed through hand manipulation of the puppets, beginning with Dallae’s birth to her sweet childhood with her family, and then finally to wartime, with sets of the four seasons representing both the stages of life and the passage of time.
