Co-presented by Phoenix Central Park and Cement Fondu, "Retellings" is a new collaborative performance by Sin Wai Kin (London, UK) and Rainbow Chan (Naarm/Melbourne).

Underscored by an evocative soundscape, this performance delves into the porous nature of storytelling. The artists will retell semi-autobiographical prose multiple times, with each version subtly shifting and blending into the next. As the stories evolve, the lines between the storytellers and their iterations blur, creating a narrative that questions the notion of authenticity and origins. "Retellings" invites you to enjoy an evening of dynamic and evolving tales, immersing you in the creative synergy of these two innovative voices.

Preceding the collaborative performance, Rainbow Chan will perform new songs from her upcoming album 'The Bridal Lament' along with earlier, celebrated musical pieces.

"Retellings" is presented in conjunction with an exhibition at Cement Fondu, which will feature newly commissioned artworks by Rainbow Chan alongside recent works by Sin Wai Kin previously not seen in Australia. 

Sin Wai Kin (b. 1991, Toronto, CA) brings fantasy to life through storytelling in performance, moving image, writing, and print. Drawing on experiences of existing between binary categories, their work realizes alternate worlds to describe lived experiences of desire, identification and consciousness.

Rainbow Chan (b. 1990, Hong Kong, lives and works in Naarm/Melbourne) is a singer, music producer and visual artist who works across sound, painting, performance and installation. Her practice is interested in notions of authenticity, imperfect translations and matrilineal histories.

Retellings: Rainbow Chan x Sin Wai Kin will perform at Phoenix Central Park on Wednesday 14 + Thursday 15 August 2024.

Free tickets via ballot only.
