$11 – $44
Melissa, a light-skinned and mixed Asian person leans their head on their mother Joy's shoulder while extending one hand cupped downwards in front of Joy’s heart, their other arm behind Joy’s head. Joy, an older Chinese woman looks out with a slight smile, with one hand palm up below Melissa’s, as if holding an invisible orb with them. They wear matching bright red patterned Qipao dresses and are in front of a gradient gray background.

Melissa Lewis Wong and Joy ChenYu Lewis

Melissa Lewis Wong, a queer, Chinese American, dance and drag artist, is proud to announce the world premiere of 花和霧 flowers and fog, a portrait of the artist and their mother, Joy ChenYu Lewis, bridging cultures, identities and art disciplines. Several years in the making, flowers and fog explores the relationship between a parent and child, and its inevitable ruptures and reconnections. Wong and her mother, both artists, forge a bond that is at once particular and archetypal, each following their distinct artistic lineages through film, contemporary dance, drag and classical Chinese song to find a meeting place in the middle.

Optional pre-performance picnic experience at 1pm in nearby Portsmouth Square. Limited to 12 people, the picnic will include sweet and savory dim sum, tea and other snacks.
