A double bill by East Asian women from the diaspora community. The solo works unpack issues around the lack of self-expression, repression of voice and displacement in a foreign land, condition and circumstance.
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.
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.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Jane Chan is a dance artist and choreographer, an integral member of Amina Khayyam Dance Company, the London Correspondent for dancejournal/hk and mentor for Arts Emergency. Storytelling through dance is at the heart of Jane’s practice – the stories are inspired by communities around her, especially those not heard often. Jane dedicates her body of work to addressing the ever-changing and multifaceted British Hong Kong – Chinese identity and increasing its representation at home and abroad.
Sung Im Her studied in Choreography at P.A.R.T.S. in Belgium. Since graduation, she has worked with Jan Fabre, Les ballets C de la B, Alias, Needcompany, and Abattoire Ferme as a performer.
