Half Water, Half Fish is a group psycho drama, which was divided into six sessions with different contents and formats. The play aimed to create a multidisciplinary art that breaks the boundaries of each genre, including music, poetic text, programmed sound, dance, gesture, theatrical elements, and interactive video, and weaves them into a whole. In the spring of 2007, for three months, 30 actors were selected through auditions for the project. The actors revealed their socially traumatic experiences during in-depth interviews and got trained to express them in an exaggerated way. During an hour-long performance, the actors were divided into three groups. Group A did a performance on the topic of massacres on the stage in order to hide the secret missions assigned to Groups B and C. Actors in Group B were placed among the audience to perform individually assigned roles. Group C served as staff members. As a result, members of Group A and B believed that Group C worked as staff, but in the real performance, Group C was secretly assigned to provoke Group B.
