I have participated in a Berlin program named Feeling Gemütlich with which the German word "Gemütlich" means the emotion of relaxation and pleasure. By walking on a street of Berlin, I am inspired by cultural invitations, such as operas and the value to continue its creative handcrafts. I believe that keeping the old memories and sharing them today are significant, which I found a need to create a nostalgic theater for dreamers. I researched tales in Germany, Der Sandmann by E. T. A. Hoffmann as a great story for me to go deeper with its honesty. I used papers, clays, and wires for the stage.
