A dance performance? A casting show? A musical? Starting with the question “Who is going to be the new “Miss Yellow”?” Olivia Hyunsin Kim is confronting the audience with clichees of asian stereotypes, using those as a resource for empowerment. “Miss Yellow and Me – I wanna be a Musical” is a piece that goes far beyond a simple parody and invites to question the own gaze on clichees.
O. Hyunsin Kim is working as choreographer, performer and lecturer in Berlin and Frankfurt and as ddanddarakim she’s collaborating with different artists. In the performance trilogy “MeMe” ddanddarakim are discussing exoticism and sterotyping in the western dance- and theaterscene. “Miss Yellow an Me..” is the third part of the series and we’re happy to present the performance at CLINCH!
