Lang(Lang)guage @ Your Kontinent Festival 2014


  • Richmond Cultural Centre 7700 Minoru Gate Richmond, BC Canada

Lang(Lang)guage investigates the role of the modern piano in contemporary Chinese society. While the instrument represents the western past, its skyrocketing popularity in mainland China has made the piano a symbol of the “eastern future”. Unprecedented numbers of child piano proteges have emerged as a result. What are the consequences of Chinese piano ownership and worship on such a mass scale?

Lang(Lang)guage is an interactive multi-media installation that will be interrupted by a performer at scheduled times for a special recital.
