Enrico D. Wey: to warring states, a useless tool

Thursday’s performance will be followed by a conversation between Enrico D. Wey and Jaime Shearn Coan.

In his third Danspace commission, Enrico D. Wey presents a deeply personal examination of Asian male identity and embodiment. Wey explores clichés such as the Asian body as a fetishized and invisible minority, asking, “Can I reclaim my own physical body from the gaze of others and from my own embedded prejudice?” This new work is a companion piece to 1, this useless tool [this folded flower] which premiered at Abrons Arts Center March 2015.

Choreographed and performed by Enrico D. Wey
Lighting designed by Elliott Jenetopulos
