Role | Poetry Performing Artist
Based on Sung A Lung’s life, Lub Qhov Rooj (“Door” in H’mong language) is about Lung’s struggle for being born into a man’s body. Like William Blake’s character Albion in the poem Four Zoas, Lung finds his four components, performed by four dancers. In this journey of collecting and reconciling the pieces, he discovers his true self.
Incorporating poetry from Chinh Ba and stunning visuals from Sandrine Llouquet, ‘Lub Qhov Rooj’ managed to transform dance’s performative nature into an explosion of candid emotions and intimacy.
