Initially an encounter between documentary film, cultural identity and animality, this project’s third iteration includes the fruits of a voyage to the choreographer’s grandfather’s home in China. Along with a videographer, she follows and maps his traces. Along the way, she discovers that her ancestral village is situated in Foshan, the birthplace of Hung Gar, a martial art inspired by animals that she practices and that marks her movement aesthetic. Over eleven days, she builds an installation from the collected artifacts of her journey, alongside collaborators in music, video, and lighting design. On days twelve and thirteen, she invites you to explore this immersive environment throughout the afternoon and evening, an exhibition with a varied programme of activities, including solo choreographies.
