“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.” - Hyejung Son
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.
