1984 Unquiet Woman

The performance Unquiet Woman was a response to Ross’s reading about a child who was blinded when the bomb was dropped on Nagasaki.

“Chu Myongsoon has been lying in a dark attic room for the past 30 years. She is unable to bear any light, not even that of a candle. On August 9, 1945, she was two years old. Carried on her mother’s back, she was near the Nagasaki train station when the flash blast levelled everything around her.”
