    Future Story started in the Seoul station at 3 pm on April 25th. At that time, Salad planned to do guerilla performance in the Seoul station as a result of a creative workshop with a theme of 'refugee.' However, accidently, North Korea's broadcasting towards the South that the military action will start within 3~4 minutes for celebrating the 80th anniversary of the national foundation was aired through the MBN news on the central TV monitor in the Seoul station when members of Salad arrived to prepare for performance. Participants suddenly felt fear that they would become refugees. The performance was canceled and the play was done in the road. The director continued the second, third, and fourth workshops with students of Tohoku Joseon School located in Sendai, Japan, Burmese Ethnic School in Maesot of Thailand, and Mongolia School in Korea. finishes as the guerilla performance canceled in the Seoul Station is shown through the Seoul Marginal Theater Festival 2012 and lively broadcasted with refugees of Japan, Thailand, and Korea.

    The Series of Unrespected Death' (plan/writing/directing: Kyongju Park)' refocusing on migration and death has dealt with stories of Korean miners dispatched to Germany, foreign migrant workers in the Yeosu Detention Center, and one migrant woman who died after international marriage like human trafficking. The series that migrant people themselves, not professional actors, have told their stories on the stage will close its theatrical experiment with refocusing on the issue of 'refugees' and 'people in a marginal line.' is a kind of road play that play, movie, and public art are combined. The director goes a road trip with a camera to meet people in a marginal line in Sendai of Japan hit by tsunami and a Myanmar refugee camp in Thailand.

    “Ran’s diary”, an experimental theatre, shows how painful and unstable life a Vietnam woman lived in Korea where understanding of other cultures lacks and paternalism is prevalent through her diary that she had written before she died. By doing so, the theatre tries to tell stories of migrant women who died after they came to Korea. Diverse instruments such as music, performance, objet, video, and recording are used in the theatre but it will not show any images of ‘oppressed persons’ such as ‘poor woman’ or ‘victim.’ Rather, ‘Ran’s diary’ discloses how ‘fantasy of men’ and ‘fantasy of women’ are entangled with each other under anti social system, ‘marriage through international brokerage like human trafficking,’ in Korean society.

    Ran, a friend of Chaw, was killed by an accident. However, the police conclude that Ran committed suicide without reasonable investigation and Chaw cannot accept their conclusion. Chaw discovers Ran’s diary while arranging her stuff. After reading her diary, Chaw thinks Ran did not commit suicide. She starts lonely fight for finding out cause of Ran’s death but nobody understands her. After reading Ran’s diary, she finds out that what life Ran had lived before she died. However, unfortunately, Ran stopped writing a diary three days before she died.

    Yeosu, Beginning, Middle and the End, Creative Artists' Group, Salad's Unrespected Deaths Series Ⅱ, deals with the fire in Yeosu Foreigners' Detention Center on February 11, 2007. The fire killed ten migrant workers and injured 17, and the play covers the episodes from right after the fire until when the bereaved families and the injured finished their compensation negotiation and left Korea.

    The play, interlaced with different characters' testimonies and assertions with the background of abstract space of memories, asks the audience what is the truth of the accident. While there are many people who were shocked at the accident and visited the funeral hall for the truth of the tragedy, the truth of the accident is still in a veil of mystery. The play does not tell the audience what is the truth of the Yeosu fire tragedy. It only makes them imagine what is the direction and images of the truth. Proceeded in experimental languages, the play is presented in multi-languages in order to make the participation of migrants conspicuous.

    During its premiere, the play also invited those survivors of the Yeosu fire who dramatically survived the tragedy but lead difficult lives suffering from aftereffects of the fire to the stage. They spoke about their experiences and opinions during the performance and received favorable comments from the audience.

    Also, the video documents which Salad TV had recorded for two months after the fire were first disclosed through the performance.
