LOLLING AND ROLLING
May 28, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
One event on May 28, 2023 at 6:00 pm
Exploring English as the predominant language of political power, LOLLING AND ROLLING is a powerful one-man show that traces the shadow of linguistic imperialism within Korean society, and questions its impact on the “inaudible voice” of the subaltern. Lolling and Rolling takes as a starting point the phenomenon of tongue-tie surgery, an operation performed in South Korea to pronounce the English-accented “r”. Through a blend of multimedia elements and performance, Jaha Koo unveils a practice which tries to silence minorities and deny their cultural agency. Lolling and Rolling is part of Jaha Koo’s Hamartia Trilogy. SIFA 2023 presents two works from this trilogy: Lolling and Rolling, and Cuckoo.
