Arirang Mass Games

Held in May Day Stadium, Pyongyang, these Mass Games — a large-scale, propoganda-filled tableau of synchronized gymnastics and performance — are staged with over 100,000 participants. The images on the far side of the stadium are comprised of human pixels: schoolchildren holding flip-books. The spectacle includes music, a laser light show, a high wire motorcycle act, and a historical narrative culminating in a future reunified Korea.
