Year of the Tiger (虎—hǔ)

Year of the Tiger (虎—hǔ) is a new live art project by theatre-artist and director, Alice Canton.

A group of strangers, born between 1938 – 2010, meet on stage to reflect on their lives and the changing world around them. The participants, each born in the year of the tiger, discover the strands of the Chinese zodiac that tie them together and the predetermined characteristics that set them apart.

Part live-documentary, part social practice, Year of the Tiger (虎—hǔ) is a new live arts project by Alice Canton (OTHER (chinese)) that celebrates intergenerational connection through ordinary, non-performers bringing to life their extraordinary experiences.

This work was originally presented with Movement Art Practice as part of Ōtautahi Tiny Performance Festival at The Centre of Contemporary Art (CoCA).
