What does that mean to help and to be helped? Who should help and who should be helped? In this performance, performers are asked to lie on the ground and raise their hand waiting for people to pull them up. The gesture of reaching for “help” is constructed while the choreography questions the audience if they should “help” or not to “help”. The word “help” is then questioned under the policy formed by the performance and ideology in which people tend to “help” to become the “helper” without knowing what they are “helping.”
