"Your Day is My Night" : Live Performance and Film
"Your Day is My Night" : Live Performance and Film
Thursday-Saturday, November 1,2 and 3 at 7:30pm  

Presented in collaboration with the Tenement Museum and the Museum of the Chinese in America

In "Your Day is My Night" a group of Chinese performers creates a dynamic live film performance that tells the collective story of Chinese immigration to New York City from the viewpoint of an older generation.  Directed by Lynne Sachs on both stage and screen,  the seven performers play themselves, all living together in a shift-bed apartment in the heart of Chinatown. Since the early days of New York's tenement houses, shift workers have had to share beds, making such spaces a fundamental part of immigrant life.  In this dynamic multi-media production, the concept of the shift-bed allows the audience to see the private become public. The bed transforms into a stage when the performers exchange stories around domestic life, dislocation and personal-political upheaval.  "Your Day is My Night" is a provocative work of experimental theater and cinema that reflects deeply on this familiar item of household furniture.  A bilingual performance in Chinese and English

Featuring: Yi Chun Cao, Linda Y.H. Chan, Chung Qing Che, Ellen Ho, Yun Xiu Huang, Sheut Hing Lee, Kam Yin Tsui

Each evening will include an engaging talk-back with the performers, moderated by representatives from University Settlement's Project Home, the Tenement Museum, and photographer Alan Chin.
