Cuttage is a tribute performance to '5.18 Democracy Movement'.
It refers to the practice of breeding plants by means of cutting. To cut a stem and to place it in a new medium, if condition fits, the stem creates a new root by itself to start a new life instead of dying.
The act of cutting and piercing is suggested for a viewer to have a direct sense of pain and suffering. At the same time, the planting act gives a promise for its new life coming on the way.
