Tadpoles Looking For Mama

Dan Wei Tadpoles Image credit hi res

Tadpoles Looking for Mama is a reimagining of a long forgotten Chinese children’s story. In this magical performance, we see the weaving together of an installation of whimsical Chinese animations of tadpoles in search of their mother with the retelling of Dan’s personal story of childhood loss.

Searching for mama in the water symbolizes a common human journey of searching for love, and the transient nature of existence. The tadpole’s life is a migratory journey full of intergenerational encounters, which represent the lessons imparted on a young person. When searching for love, care and supportive mother nature exists in everyone across cultures and gender. As a Chinese migrant in Australia, Dan's artwork honours the artist's cultural heritage and values its connections to the contemporary, multicultural modern society.

This show is part of the Brimbank Writers and Readers Festival 2021
