Performer boychild and Wu Tsang collaborate in film and live performance, exploring different forms of storytelling through the languages of visual art, cinema, drag, and movement.
YOU SAD LEGEND, 2016
For the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement, boychild and Wu Tsang present a new iteration of their ongoing performance collaboration, featuring the experimental cellist Patrick Belaga, which explores different modes of storytelling through an improvisational structure of voice, movement, and musical score. Their new piece, called You Sad Legend, accompanies Tsang’s film project, Duilian (also presented during the BIM) about the Chinese revolutionary poet Qiu Jin (秋瑾, 1875-1907) and her intimate friend, the calligrapher Wu Zhiying (吳芝瑛, 1868-1934).
