Wu Tsang and boychild, feat Patrick Belaga You Sad Legend

SA 19.11.2016 21:30 sold out

You Sad Legend is part of an ongoing performance collaboration between visual artist and filmmaker Wu Tsang and performance artist boychild, featuring experimental cellist Patrick Belaga.

The performance combines operatic and nightclub sensibilities, exploring different modes of storytelling through an improvisational structure of voice, movement, and musical score. In it's current iteration, You Sad Legend takes inspiration from Tsang's recent film project Duilian, which queers the relationship between a famous historical Chinese revolutionary poet named Qiu Jin, and her intimate friend the calligrapher Wu Zhiying.
