RED—A Documentary Performance
DOI: 10.14361/9783839459973-010
The script of the documentary dance performance »RED« by Wen Hui and Living Dance Studio takes »The Red Detachment of Women«, one of the eight revolutionary model opera works that formed the official cultural canon of the Cultural Revolution, as its point of departure. »RED« uses a variety of documentary materials: publications, audio-visual clips, memorabilia from the original revolutionary model ballet, and interview footage, to not only evoke a special territory of memory but also to reactivate a living and lived archive within specific bodies: those of the performers, and those of people who experienced the Cultural Revolution.
