“The year I became a mother, I encountered a flower in a snowfield. My 9-month old baby, who didn’t even say ‘Mama’, burst out the word ‘Flower 꽃’ with his small mouth. How wonderful is it to say ‘Flower 꽃’ with all his energy…”
The hope, beauty and unique perfection of a Flower 꽃 symbolises a baby’s developing sense of self. Flower 꽃 can also represent their parent, and the delicate, intangible energy between them.
A trans-cultural performance for audiences aged 4 – 18 months, Flower 꽃 celebrates the complete ‘being-ness’ of each baby, over-turning ideas about a baby entering the world as a blank slate and offering the view that parents have as much to learn and gain from their baby as their baby learns and gains from them.
