Yang Zhen gives a voice to the social condition of a new generation of ethnic minorities in China. Using dancers and performers from the Tibetan region, Inner Mongolia, the Uyghur Autonomous Region Xinjiang and Macao, as well as a Korean-Chinese dancer and an opera singer from Hunan Province, Minorities
examines the constant conflict between social prejudice and artists need to express themselves and relate their identities to the world they live in. Dance, theatre, documentary material from Zhen's extensive travel experiences, and the performers' memories, form the basis of this interdisciplinary and immersive work of theatre.
