What is Chinese? What is being Chinese? What is not Chinese?
Other [chinese] is an award-winning, live documentary theatre project by White_mess (Alice Canton). This large-scale work invites local participants to explore the complexities of contemporary diasporic Chinese identities, examining the everyday lives and experiences of Chinese people in Ōtepoti Dunedin.
Facilitated in real-time, audiences gain raw insight into a range of local and global issues. Real people reveal real stories from the heart, offering converging - and sometimes conflicting - perspectives. Other [chinese] reflects on the many intersecting aspects of identity that make us unique, and examines what it is to be Chinese in Aotearoa, here and now.
