mother land / foreign relations

(We are all here why do you never call?)



created and performed by Meiyin Wang

mother land / foreign relations is a performance for two people that unpacks China's history through the poetry that emerges from The New York Times front-page headlines from the last hundred years, and through the interrogation of a mother’s mundane history. With dumplings!

Part performance, part lecture, part installation, mother land / foreign relations reconstructs and dissolves history and personal stories, dancing on the borders of memory.
