Referencing a popular ABBA song, Su Hui-yu’s video conducts a séance of a late-night Taiwanese television variety show where host Frankie Kao presented song and dance numbers. Filmed in the only remaining Red Envelope cabaret theatre in Ximending, Taipei, the mourning of a disappearing tradition is imbued with melancholy.
