It was a huge act of courage
By the man
Who looked like a small boy
On the small screen
Which made the Big Tank
Look like a small toy
But he had his back to the screen
So he wasn’t known
And he wasn’t seen.
Daniel York Loh ( Forgotten遗忘) reflects on the East Asian experience living in the West, when huge geopolitical moments are erased from history and become merely a backdrop for Western media and the white lens. Julia Cheng (House of Absolute) brings his words to life through her poignant choreography and dialogue, supported by spoken word artist Enxi Chang.
The performance will be followed by a panel discussion of the piece and the broader discourse around artists, representation and re-mediation of the imagery of East Asian political resistance.
Tickets for this performance range from £15.00 – £18.00. There is a £3.00 booking fee.
