Chinese Vaginies

2016

Soft and fluffy. Moist to the touch. They’re versatile and unique in shape. After a quick steam, these tender pillows are ready to be enjoyed!

Chinese Vaginies is a playful choreography that considers the interconnected issues of food, labour, race, and violence on the female body. It was conceived through a series of dinner dialogues with local artists and community leaders. It was later re-worked during a residency offered by fu-GEN Theatre.
