percussion and video
Eagle Claw Wu Tsiao Chen Wins is a piece for video and solo percussion. In this piece, performer is situated within a complex and fragmented narrative pulled from many Kung Fu novels and films. Pitting the performer in an epic struggle between fixed time and rhythmic flux, this work takes on early Kung Fu film’s use of Chinese instruments to punctuate fight moves. The female character Wu Tsiao Chen seen on the video is originally from Master of the Flying Guillotine, a 1975 Taiwanese / Hong Kong martial arts film.
