Cynthia Ling Lee - Choreography

In "blood run," Cynthia Ling Lee investigates her Taiwanese indigenous and Han Chinese colonizer heritages within the context of larger political histories. Part ritual, part performance art, part colonial history inscribed on the body, her work asks: “What is the difference between an immigrant and a colonizer?” “How do the colonizer and colonized live inside the same body?” “When does survival require disappearance?” "blood run" asks what hidden histories are contained in the body, while acknowledging the impossibility of fully reclaiming what has been lost.
