Mass Games can basically be described as a synchronized socialist-realist spectacular. Featuring over 100,000 participants in a 90-minute display of gymnastics, dance, acrobatics, and dramatic performance, accompanied by music and other effects, all wrapped in a highly politicized package. The 90 minute performance features the ‘largest picture in the world. A giant mosaic of individual students each holding a book whose pages links with their neighbours’ to make up one gigantic scene. In August 2007, the Mass Games were recognised by Guinness World Records as the largest gymnastic display with 100,090 participants at the May Day Stadium in Pyongyang. (Source Wikipedia)
This show is by far the most incredible and amazing performance we have ever laid our eyes on. Watch this time-lapse tilt-shift film and you will know why. However, we do not want to get involved in politics here, so please do your own research. Many thanks to Simon Cockerell and Jessica Mader from Koryo Tours and Ri So Hyang, Kim Sun Mi, Lee Song Hyok, Kim Yong Un from KITC for arranging permissions and making this project possible.
