|Remark||The performance uses a fog machine, flashing lights, a laser light and a stroboscope. Images of a ritual with self-harming actions are shown, which may have a disturbing effect on some viewers. There is a moment of complete darkness. Loud music and repetitive sounds are played. Hearing protection is provided at the entrance. The audience area is seated. "Early boarding is possible.|
That's what it's about
Shamanism meets voguing meets Yishun. For "Yishun is Burning", Choy Ka Fai adapts Singaporean ritual dances for a transcendent queer solo on a multimedia stage. Dancer Sun Phitthaya Phaefuang (a.k.a. Aurora Sun Labeija) enters states between ecstasy, trance and drag, transgressing attributions of gender, cultural identity and religion.
That's why you have to come
In search of religious ecstasy, we dive into the dystopian suburb of Singapore - Yishun. Thirty years after the iconic New York documentary “Paris is Burning”, this evening intertwines themes of a globalized world with old and new movement traditions, celebrating the search for (one's) spirituality in dance.
Afterwards, we invite you to an evening with music and drinks in the Carlsgarten of Schauspiel Köln and in our brand new festival centre. Accompanied by speeches and a DJ set by GÎN BALI, we will start the festival with you!
