Samson Young: Muted Situation #2: Muted Lion Dance

When 6 Mar 2016
2:00PM - 6:00PM
Where WhiteBox
329 Broome St #1
New York, NY 10002
United States

Stage a Lion Dance involving four or more dancers, without the accompanying percussive music. That is to say, to dance in silence. This must be done without a diminution of the energy that is normally exerted in a Lion Dance. The choreography, the costume, the scattering of lettuce and all other factors pertaining to the performative intent of the work should remain intact for as far as possible.

As a result other sounds will be revealed, including not limited to the intense breathing of the performers, the verbal communication and cues between the Lions Dancers, sounds of the lion’s head rattling, and the stomping of the feet.
