Fierce Festival: Make Banana Cry

Source https://www.birminghammuseums.org.uk/bmag/whats-on/andrew-tay-stephen-thompson-make-banana-cry

Make Banana Cry is a critical and destabilizing dance performance questioning Asian stereotypes and the transmission of cultural identity. The work confronts western perceptions of the ‘Asian Fantasy’ in a durational parade drawing on the background of the diverse cast of Canadian artists.

As aesthetic embodiments of ‘Asian-ness’ become more predominant in Western art and pop culture, the artists share a desire to reflect on these representations and explode the mechanisms that create these categorisations within today’s appropriative landscape.
