As you may know, the production of my film Your Day is My Night has turned into a series of three live performances in New York, each one designed for a specific location. You are invited to our two final Spring 2012 events on April 21 at the Chinatown Library and on May 1 at Proteus Gowanus in Brooklyn. You’ll find all of the information below. We hope you can join us at one of our shows.

The New York Public Library presents:

performance, screening and conversation
Saturday, April 21, 2012 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. (free)
Chatham Square Public Library in Chinatown
33 East Broadway, New York
A reception to follow the performance.
A collective of Chinese performers living in New York City explores “shiftbeds” through verité conversations, character-driven fictions and an integrated movement piece. A shift-bed is shared by people who are neither in the same family nor in a relationship. Inspired by theater visionaries Augusto Boal and the Wooster Group, the collective has worked for the last year on a series of performance workshops centered around such a bed – experienced, remembered, and imagined from profoundly different viewpoints. Including a 20 minute excerpt of the feature length film.
Performers: Yi Chun Cao, Yueh (Linda) Hwa Chan, Che Chang-Qing, Yun Xiu Huang, Ellen Ho, Sheut Hing Lee, Veraalba Santa Torres and Pedro Sanchez Tormes
