Feast of Fishbones
dance + mixed media animation + sound

we smirk towards the audience and become close to devouring you. if you can see us, it could be a trick we play. we invite you in, untraceable, unnameable and barely seen with the light. as performers of the asian diaspora, we are the ones that GAZE BACK.

critique de Emmalie Ruest:
“Feast of fishbones commence avec un jeu habile de lumière, faisant apparaître et disparaître un duo fusionnel mêlant horreur et sensualité. Ce début éclatant ne sera pas dépassé pour le reste de la proposition au niveau de l'intensité, qui n’en demeure pas moins intrigante et mystérieuse. Créée et interprétée par Camille Huang, en collaboration de la danseuse Evelynn Yann, cette pièce allie danse, performance et art visuel, rien de moins.”

“Slug Meal” explores a sensation of “matter out of place”:
 rooting from conceptions of immigrant food as distasteful.
 Haunted by a swallowed slug, this piece is a performative
 digestion, complexifying ideas of belonging and implications
 of ‘filth’ in a Chinese, feminised body.
