the territory of me

A seed by: Natalie Tin Yin Gan
Project: Main Pool
顏婷妍 is the name that my grandfather gave me. Natalie is what my parents named me. My mother is from Hong Kong and she loves to eat with me. My father is from Malaysia and he is my greatest ping pong rival. I breathe and create in so-called Vancouver, on the unsurrendered, ancestral lands of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. My practice squats (115 lb) at the intersection of spirit, somatics, and technology-induced melancholy. I am Co-Artistic Director of multimedia performance company Hong Kong Exile, a graduate of SFU’s The Writer’s Studio, a certified teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework®.  I currently write for indie video game company, Sunset Visitor. I am a late sleeper, a late riser, a late bloomer, a latecomer, and a late-night snacker.

How did no one tell me we are made of mountains? What a secret to keep.

Six months into the pandemic, I was deep in quiet spiritual sabbatical, discovering the inherent ways we are just of the elements: earth, water, electricity. I laid down after a shower one day and took time I have never, ever taken in my life–to witness my body, my hunk of land mass, as an extension of this planet we call home.
