Montreal Ni-Hao

“I compartmentalize my body, my mind, emotions, and politics.” Set in the everyday of Montreal’s Chinatown, this nighttime performative walking tour speaks to the themes of racism, labour exploitation, sexuality, and cultural stereotypes from the eyes of a queer Chinese temporary worker through contemplations on displacement, roots, love and grief.
