Rodman in North Korea
Composer:Sarah Hutchings
Librettist:Mark Sonnenblick
Rodman in North Korea begins at a large rally following North Korea’s successful nuclear test. Kim Jong-Un, flush with victory, is certain that Obama will now be calling him to negotiate. Instead, he gets a phone call from the news organization Vice: they want Dennis Rodman and the Harlem Globetrotters to come and play a basketball game with the North Korean players. Jong-Un, who grew up obsessed with the Bulls, is surprised but agrees. When the Americans arrive and cultures begin to clash, Kim Jong-Un finds himself increasingly lost amidst the crass exuberance of American culture and the severe, confining legacy of his father and grandfather. It doesn’t help that, somewhere outside the grand stadiums of Pyongang, families are struggling, economies are slumping, children are starving in the streets…why does everyone always count on the dictator to keep a country from collapsing?
