Join us for a special House of Rice performance in the A Seat at the Table exhibition on Chinese Migration to BC.
Led by House Mother, Shay Dior, House of Rice is Vancouver’s first all-Asian drag house. The exhibition includes the story of the first Miss Chinatown Pageant – a response by the Chinese Canadian community to the exclusion of Asian women in local beauty pageants. In what ways do drag artists of Asian descent build on and inspire further interventions of Western ideals of gender, art, and beauty? What intersections, histories, and solidarities does it celebrate?
“Sissy that Wok” will open with a Lion Dance by Fluffy the Lion followed by drag performances by Shay Dior, Maiden China, and Skim. A panel discussion moderated by Davey Calderon will follow the performances.
