Slug Meal is a hyper-physical performance exploring sensations of taste and “matter out of place”: rooting from conceptions of immigrant food as distasteful. Haunted by a swallowed slug, it is a performative digestion complexifying ideas of purity, belonging and implications of ‘filth’ in a Chinese, feminized body.

Set amidst the echo of ‘immigrant identity’, the scene becomes at once, both washed and dirty. The performer undulates between formal abstraction through decontextualized objects and the visceral emergence of their own felt body. 

“matter out of place” in reference to Douglas, P. M. (2002). Purity and Danger. Routledge.
