    Yi Sang Counts to Thirteen

    Read the Offoffoff review

    — -A Play About Love, Surrealist Poetry and Diet Coke — -Winner, 2001 FringeNYC Excellence for Overall Production Award Welcome to the strange and fantastic inner world of Korean surrealist writer Yi Sang. "Yi Sang Counts to Thirteen" re-imagines the darkly ironic, existential, and comic imagination of this brilliant writer of surreal, abstract poems and dark comic short stories. The play is set in a mathematical-theoretical world where Seoul, circa 1937, is grafted onto present day New York. BLUE (who could be Yi Sang) and RED (who could be his best friend) both fall in love with GREEN (an enigmatic woman). While BLUE tries to fly beyond the confines of his world, he finds solace in the fleeting moments shared with RED and GREEN. Twenty vignettes explore the dynamics of this complex love triangle while imagining the inner psyche of Yi Sanga fantastic place where body parts assume roles in a detective noir; women perform exquisite ceromonies with Diet Coke; water is of spiritual importance; and the twisted geometry of a Moebius strip symbolizes an excess of subjectivity.
