Introduction Bibap is a nonverbal performance based on the Korean representative dish, bibimbap (rice mixed with vegetables and beef). As a nonverbal performance, the actors mimic the sound of making bibimbap with beat-boxing and a cappella, demonstration of motions through b-boying, and acrobatics and martial arts. Since its debut in 2009, Bibap has been staged and well-received at food conferences as well as global venues like the 2010 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Today, it is heralded as the pioneer of a new culture code, Eatertainment, the combination of eating and entertainment. Get a taste of this innovative and dynamic performance at Cine Core now!
Synopsis The bibimbap performance takes place in a kitchen, where chefs make a variety of dishes as orders come in. They happily prepare Chinese, Japanese and Italian dishes. Finally, when the kitchen receives an order of 'the best bibimbap,' the two rival sous chefs compete in a bibimbap cook-off. Their dishes are judged by a randomly selected audience member, who then determines which chef stays in the kitchen to carry on the legacy of making the best bibimbap. (visitkorea.or.kr)
