Canary in the coal mine (2020)

This performance took place simultaneously within the period of sunset that gradually falled into the dark night. Under the mysterious sky, I sat on a rotted platform that was abandoned on the rooftop of the Quoc Thao Theatre. Facing my back against the poetic moment of sunset, I held each mannequin’s heads into my body and started to mourn for the future.
