Production of ACC Repertoire
“Whispers at the Table”

What memories are set on your table?

ACC presents two performances developed under the theme of “table and memory.”
In 2023, directors Kim Mi-ran (theater) and Yoo Sun-hoo (dance) were selected through an open call for directors.
ACC completed this production after a year-long development process.
On the table, an everyday object and place where we spend our daily lives,
personal and special narratives stemming from each director’s experiences, memories, and senses unfold.

Project Timeline +

I’m eating alone... Is it wrong?
I’ll eat by myself today.

“Whispers at the Table” is an artistic fantasy that depicts the phenomenon of “eating alone” as a psychological symptom of modern urbanites. Beginning with the question, “Why has it become a world where people are comfortable eating alone?” individuals who have no choice but to eat alone or enjoy it are sat around a table. The directors also express their personal feelings of loneliness through the act of eating alone. The performance allows them to escape from the many people they encounter in their work and find solace and healing while eating alone. The courageous self-confession that celebrates solo dining evokes sympathy.


Mojita is preparing for a performance centered around eating alone while others are making music and dancing.
The rehearsal room is filled with passion, determination, and a musty odor that won’t go away no matter how much you run the air purifier.
After a day of intense concentration, her coworkers decide to eat together, but Mojita wants to eat alone.
Then, an invitation flies in, carried by the wind.
“You are invited to the Island of Eating Alone. Welcome to the paradise of solo dining.”
Mojita boarded a boat that took her to the Island of Eating Alone,
where she wandered through a world of mukbang (food porn), recipes, and hypocrisy.
In her fantasies, Mojita sees herself alone in a restaurant, engrossed in her phone, and inside a recording studio.

You are invited to a world where chosen solitude is enjoyed.
