The national theater

This work deals with a tragic unsolved mysterious incident took place in the recent Korean history on the super-power women figure of Yuk Yeong-su in 1970’s.
Yuk Yeong-su, wife of the Korea’s fifth former president/dictator Park Jung-hee, was assassinated by an unidentified man during the national ceremony held at The National Theater to celebrate the Independence Day of Korea In 1974. This suspicious incident has been still unsolved.
In my performance, I played the role as the president’s wife Yuk Yeong-su, and revived at the dramatic moment of shooting and falling by repeating it 18 times.
