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, opposes stereotypes of Asian politics 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.
