Performance with Wen Yau, Ox Warehouse
MIPAF, DoDoa Festival, Sobre Macao
2007

Let's learn all about Macau in its local language! In Macau the street signs are in Portuguese first. Then Cantonese. Portuguese is an Official language although most people don’t speak it. Using text phonetically ‘translated’ into Cantonese, Clare Charnley and Wen Yau enabled the audience to ‘speak’ Portuguese. The text was cut and pasted from the official tourist website which describes thrilling shopping and clean water, but speaks of even more by omission.
