Dixon Place Presents My Little China Girl
When David Bowie died, performing artist Soomi Kim was suddenly reminded of her own coming of age in the MTV generation and her adolescent desire to be the exotic Asian woman in Bowie’s China Girl video. MLCG (My Little China Girl) is a high octane solo performance that traverses Kim’s experiences as a first generation Korean American navigating the single most tragic event in her life, the confiscation of memory and the attempts that were made to replace them. MLCG (My Little China Girl) will pair award winning artists Kim and director Leta Tremblay with video artists Justin West and Kevan Loney.
