In bygone times, somewhere far away. Church of Tanurae sent a young monk, Uri, to a provincial convent where there was a rumour of heresy. In the convent he witnessed a ritual praying to “Miracle Maiden” who was singing and dancing in front of ecstatic crowd. Through knowing the abbess, Ada, interacting with a mysterious blind girl and people living around the convent, young Uri began rethinking his faith…
Inspired by the age where Catholic Church was dominant, the story tries to picture what sin, love, or faith could be like. The chorus are making a dreamy, mystic atmosphere.

The Story of Halluciné
This work takes a close look at the layers of fantasy that weave the world together, depicting the reality of dreams, and the dream of reality.
In a bid to overlay the moment when the boundary between fantasy and reality unravels with the poetic rhythm of words and depict the moment as a single landscape, the troupe engages in a variety of creative activity such as theater.
