Event Information

Whiskey Chow is a London-based artist and Chinese drag king. Coming from an activist background in China, Whiskey’s practice engages with political issues, exploring female masculinity, stereotypes and cultural projections of Chinese/Asian identity with interdisciplinary performance, moving image and experimental sound pieces.

In this other-worldly performance, audiences will be immersed in a world created by Whiskey that explores ancient mythological and contemporary queer longing. Featuring moving image of the ancient god of queer love – the Rabbit God (兔兒神) by digital artist Haocheng Wu, the work is a rebellion against the normalization of queerness.

The Moon is Warmer than the Sun is performed and created by Whiskey Chow.

A Diverse Actions commission, co-commissioned by Artsadmin, Buzzcut, Chinese Arts Now, Chapter Arts Centre and Fierce Festival.
