Show Show Show: “The Show Must Go On” Recycled

Sasa [44]

Essay by Geun-jun Lim

Show Show Show

This publication documents Sasa [44]’s performance-exhibition at the KCAF Arts Theater, Seoul, as part of Modafe 2005. The performance was a interpretation-translation of Jérôme Bel’s piece The Show Must Go On. Sasa [44] replaced the soundtrack of the original with Korean songs, following the original’s choreography as strictly as possible.

The book is bilingual: the Korean text is placed on the left-hand pages, and the English the right-hand – or the other way round, depending on which one you are reading. The arrangement of the images also follow a similar structure: still images of a video recording of the performance are placed next to the photographs of a rehearsal on the opposite pages, telling a story of two diacritical events.
