An imaginative physical work using choral storytelling and the poetry of object puppets to tell an adventurous tale. Amoeba weaves the history of Jikji together with the true story of an ambitious young woman named Dr. Park, who while working at the National Library of France discovers a book- but not just any book.  The Jikji.
