"Your Day is My Night" : Live Performance and Film
Thursday-Saturday, November 1,2 and 3 at 7:30pm

Presented in collaboration with the Tenement Museum and the Museum of the Chinese in America

In "Your Day is My Night" a group of Chinese performers create a dynamic live film performance that tells the collective story of Chinese immigration to New York City from the viewpoint of an older generation. On both stage and screen, the seven performers play themselves, all living together with a young Puerto Rican woman in a shift-bed apartment on Hester Street in the heart of Chinatown. These apartments are filled with beds that people rent for twelve hour shifts. The concept of the shift-bed allows us as viewers to see the private become public, as the bed transforms into a stage for our characters to reveal the struggles and joys of their lives. Directed by Lynne Sachs, "Your Day is My Night" is a provocative work of experimental theater and cinema that looks at issues of privacy, intimacy, and community in relationship to this familiar item of household furniture.
