The Double by Chun Hua Catherine Dong
WhiteFeather performed in this choreographed work by Chun Hua Catherine Dong, presented as part of Festival de théâtre de rue de Lachine, Quebec.
Dong's description of the work: "The gestures in the performance are inspired by gargoyle, a legendary stone-carved grotesque with a spout that normally is designed to convey water from a roof. Mouth serves as the opening for food intake and in the articulation of sound and speech. However, when performers wear the mouthpieces, or when women’s mouth is forced to open, the mouth loses its function. In fact, it silences and disables the women because they are unable to talk when their mouths are widely pulled open."
