This choreographic solo features a performer haunted by the manifestation of a swallowed slug. A slime emerges from the cultural connotations associated with taste and distaste. This performative digestion is an embodied inquiry into intercultural identity, complexifying the notions of purity, belonging, and the implications of “filth” within a feminized Chinese body.

Camille’s work brings together a background in cultural anthropology, dance performance, and a keen eye for composition to form an emerging choreographic journey. As a second generation immigrant as well as the first generation artist in her family lineage, Camille’s work unfolds pluralities-poetic-mixed. Camille composes their performance work with a transdisciplinary ethic.
