After My Alarm Wakes Me Up 

The work After My Alarm Wakes Me up is a piece composed of 6 monologues for 6 performers, extended from the work My Alarm Wakes Me Up. Each of 6 performers individually tells the audience what he/she does and thinks when waking up. The action they take considers how a person faces a day in the life.  

1. When I wake up everyday, I take a shower. 
2. When I wake up everyday, I guess this winter will be heavier than last year. 
3. When I wake up everyday, I need some fresh air.
4. When I wake up everyday, I am wondering whether this world is getting better or worse. 
5. When I wake up everyday, I don't know what's the name of this street. 
6. When I wake up everyday, I feel lucky, because I am still alive, as I don't know if I can wake up tomorrow morning.
