A free performance exploring humanity’s desire for the ideal society and addressing the most pressing concerns of the modern world, including migration and human rights.
Featuring two performers it explores an interaction between human and alien, focusing on questions of home, displacement and memory. Engaging with ancient East Asian mythology, it touches on issues of belief, identity and transcending cultural backgrounds and communities as well as the psychological and political instabilities of a post-pandemic world.
In response to recent hate crimes against Asian people, the performance in particular deals with issues of identity related to ethnicity, race and gender and the historical portrayal of these bodies.
With a core creative team of East and Southeast Asian (ESEA) heritage, it provides a platform to support artists currently underrepresented in the arts in the UK.
This socially distanced event is free to attend and will take place outside in Cornmill Gardens, Lewisham, London, SE13 7BN.
