South Korean theatre maker, videographer and composer Jaha Koo presents The Hamartia Trilogy in the Katharsis 2022 context. In Greek, hamartia means tragic flaw or shortcoming, a concept that Koo has interwoven into completely different guises throughout his three performances Lolling & Rolling, Cuckoo and The History of Korean Western Theatre.

In the trilogy, the far-reaching imperialism of the past and present, and its sometimes unexpected personal impact, are the common thread. In his intelligent and haunting documentary theatre performances, Jaha Koo intertwines personal stories with historical, political and sociological facts. Often themes that entail a clash of Eastern and Western culture: from the cutting of tongue belts to make it in the West, to the heavy personal toll of Western interference in the macroeconomic field.

The performances can also be enjoyed individually.

These performances are part of the Katharsis 2022 cycle.
