Be Like Water

When artist Hetain Patel was little, he wanted to be a superhero, like Bruce Lee. When he was older, he aspired to become his dad, another kind of freedom fighter who battled to take care of his family.

In his live performance, Patel tells the story of where, between these two fantasy identities, his own self might exist.

 

The piece uses  five projectors, seven cameras and two movable screens to  build the environment of Hetain's narrative, which two years in production, is a collaboration between Hetain Patel, Barret from Vent Media, dancer Yuyu Rau  and musician Ling Peng.

The show was  premiered at the Linbury Studio, Royal Opera House, London.
