“He~~ llo~~ He! Llo! He? Llo?
Hello... Hello? Hello! He? Llo?”
“Am I really the only one left here?”
“Is today the third day or the fortieth day, or perhaps the first year, the tenth?”
“If you can hear me, could you please let me know?”
“Maybe if I shout a little louder, someone will respond?”
If one day, someone is like an animal hibernating, sleeping continuously,
still breathing but no longer responsive to the world, do you think they still exist?
If one day, someone is asleep like the Sleeping Beauty,
their eyes never open again, no longer able to feed themselves, seemingly devoid of thought, are they trapped rather than gone?
“Hello” is a way of greeting, a beginning of longing for connection.
With only the word “hello” throughout, the actor expresses loneliness, contentment, imagination, and anticipation. Like sending Morse code, the actor interacts with you through various means imagined in his mind, such as shadows, moonlight, and sounds outside the window, hoping for a response from the unknown.
Hello, please listen carefully. Perhaps he’s been calling out inside your body all along. Hello, even if it's a faint voice, please remember to respond to him!
