Raw and fearless: Dam Van Huynh’s In Realness

"An exploration of resistance, queer sexuality, and gender politics performed with impressive range and energy by Tommaso Petrolo"

In Realness by Van Huynh Company | review

"A solo performed by Tommaso Petrolo and choreographed by Dam Van Huynh, a highly captivating, emotional and explicit work that challenges how we situate ourselves within(out) our society.”

Vietnamese choreographer Dam Van Huynh talks about his new work In Realness

"As a queer Vietnamese artist, I began the work commenting on gender politics and sexuality but as the work developed it became a larger symbol for inequality experienced by many other groups. I reflected further upon this with the understanding that gathering voices through the piece is to acknowledge the importance of strength in unity when faced with inequality."

In Realness premieres 13-14 May 22

After 2 turbulent years of pandemic, Dam Van Huynh premieres a new solo made for and with company artist Tommaso Petrolo. This new creation will premiere on 13-14 May 2022 at Rich Mix, London.

In Realness is an artistic collage of sounds, collected texts, and movement references which stand in resistance of the status quo. Dam Van Huynh, as a queer Vietnamese artist, raises his voice and opposes stereotypes of Asians as being quiet and internal. He embodies through his piece a dissent from prejudices and inequality and its effects on our society.

Desmond Tutu said 'if you are neutral in the face of injustice, you are on the side of the oppressor'. Remembering such words lifts us out of silence and stirs up collective activism and collective care. Individual voices, brought together, create a body of resistance against oppressive norms and behaviours, amplifying our resilience, building unity and communicative power.
