Orlando Warrior

Presented by House of Absolute, choreographed by Julia Cheng, this solo contemporary dance piece accompanied by live music explores the myth of a modern Mu-Lan. Externalising her inner battles through wu-shu martial arts and waacking, this piece examines displacement and hybrid identity, masking a yang (male) fighter behind a yin (female) form, travelling through time via physical paintings of a Warrior Poet in motion. The dance piece is followed by a discussion with performer Sam Lu.

Dance: 45 minutes
