- Concept -

Memories inhabit the body and the body projects those memories. “When do we start to drink coffee, when do we reach adulthood?” This is the question the members of Nibroll asked seventeen years ago in Coffee, a work where they explore how the obscure boundaries of adulthood overlap with memories that do not fade away. Now, the story continues in a new piece that asks what the body remembers and what it forgets.

This piece presents the many “obscure boundaries” we unknowingly cross in our daily lives. We all cross boundaries without ever realizing it. Generally, these boundaries tend to be rather obscure. For example, coffee, something we were prevented from drinking when children…before we know it, we are gulping it down like many others do, yet we never do remember the first time we actually drank coffee. Just when did we break the obscure boundary of “Coffee” and graduate into the realm of adulthood? This piece fully explores the obscure, yet important boundaries that we all have to cross eventually.
