Hu Weiyi performs "A Speechless Speech" at 2:10 PM on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at @asiasociety New York.
About this performance: The actor’s body, presented as a subject that is restricted from freedom and speech, yields to the chaotic narratives made by electronic devices, such as cameras and screens. We are reading, processing and interpreting the language that comes directly from our body but doesn’t necessarily represent what we truly believe. The purpose of this work is to discuss the dilemma we face on a daily basis in the contemporary word that requires constant delivery and process of information against our will.
