CONCEPT
Taking the traditional Chinese shadow puppetry style

The project finds the connection between traditional shadow play and motion capture. Shows how “corporate slavery”(社畜) is manipulated like a puppet in current society through a live performance.



社畜/しゃちく(corporate slave)

The people who make the business world go round and round, without them executives might actually have to do something besides make rules to make it more difficult for the slaves under them to do their job. Corporate slaves are easily identifiable by the vacant look in their eyes as they are always overworked, underpaid and underappreciated.
