A triple bill of radical new performance works by womxn from the East Asian Diaspora.
The East Asian Ticket Club present their first curated event to address the lack of visible creative platforms for Contemporary Performance works by East Asian Womxn from the Diaspora community. The new works unpack issues around intergenerational empathy, challenges the objectification of womxn and a philosophical reconfiguration of the value of sadness through sound, text, video and performance.
Void – Jane Chan
A solo inspired by Jane’s late grandmother who had Alzheimer’s disease and the older adults she met through movement and dance projects in community and hospital settings. Confronted by constraints of the body and mind, Void explores freedom within a lack of means. Void reveals the beauty and brutality of human life.
You Are Okay – Sung Im Her
An expression of self when the voice is being repressed. You Are Okay! emerged from research into immigration and the borderlines between and within people. It is an attempt to discover the displaced body in a foreign country.
The Other Day You Sat Too Far Away From Me – Moi Tran
The first in a new series of work, The Other Day You Sat Too Far Away From Me – A Memory in Five parts. A vignette of abstracted diasporic memories in a live staged encounter, reconfiguring the value of sadness through a combination of movement, voice, and sound.
Future Fridays is our regular programme championing new work led by Chisenhale Dance Members. Join us for a first look at seven projects which shun conventions and face the future of performance head-on.
