The Semiotic approach to “taboo” in Dance - Focus on Song’s Dance 「The sky, the sound of drum」Ok-ja Um, Sung-hee MinProfessor of Dance, Pusan National UniversityDoctor Course, Pusan National UniversityThe semiotics of Greimas, A. J. gives us a hint to understand modern art by analyzing traits of sign in myth and narrative. One of them is, so called, ?The interaction of semiotic constraints?, which is one of ?approach to Taboo? methodologies.This study analyzes format and contents of ?taboo? as a whole, which is a widely used material in Korean dance, by means of Greimas?s approach.I approached to Song?s Dance 「The sky, the sound of drum」 on the basis of Greimas?s ?carre semiotique theory?. As a result, binary opposites of ?taboo and command? are matched each other with ?non-taboo and non-command?, as establish square structure; each verdict of the square is crossed to its opposites.It presents that conflicts between regulations(culture) and love(nature) definitely take place and that troubles among characters culminate under the surroundings. Such taboo in narrative is based on myth. Considering origins and meanings of myth, you can easily notice that taboo is a good tool for commanders to control and sustain their society.Finally, taboo comes to play a role to oppression others? authorities, which are often issued in the discussion of modern philosophy.In addition, this insight can be extended to the field of ?feminism?s gender theory?; theory regards female as non-commanders.
