In Search of Holy Chop Suey is creator-performer Yvonne Ng’s self-reflection, incorporating humour and pathos, on a life of creation as an immigrant to Canada. Through imitation in movement and mining influences from sources as varied as her mother, modern dance, kung fu legends, ordinary people, wild animals and more. Weave…part one uses a contemporary dance framework to braid her mother’s life with her own. Ng’s mother was sold and adopted (post World War II) into a Peranakan Chinese family as a baby. At age 19, on the death of the adopted patriarch, she was discarded and all association with the family cut. Central to the solo is a questioning of the role/value of a woman in Asia and in Canada – if all this has really changed with the passing of time.
