Van Huynh Company presents In Realness
In Realness is an artistic collage of sounds, collected texts, and movement references which stand
in resistance of the status quo. UK based choreographer Dam Van Huynh, as a queer Vietnamese
artist, raises his voice and opposes stereotypes of Asians as being quiet and internal. He
embodies through his piece – performed by Tommaso Petrolo – 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.
