Eisa Jocson

(Manila)

Princess

Saal

Dance

Right before her performance at the Tanzplattform Deutschland in Essen, Eisa Jocson presents her production „Princess“ again at Mousonturm. In films and leisure parks, the Disney imperium has made Snow White the essence of the Happy Girl. From Los Angeles to Hong Kong, princess-actresses enchant audiences by waving and smiling. The choreographer Eisa Jocson, who lives in Manila, observes this apparently universal performance of happiness from a
particular perspective: Disneyland Hong Kong is the largest employer for Philippine dancers in the region, but because of the colour of their skin they are only cast in nameless subsidiary roles. Jocson, together
with the performance artist Russ Ligtas, puts an end to this by appropriating the physicality of Snow White and creating a playing field of identities.
