Synopsis The story is set in Los Angeles. Young is a Korean American from Chicago, who sees his drag performance and sculptural arts as a production of a mutant beauty. Joanna is a Chinese Opera Singer from Shanghai, who only sings the male part. Lis is a clown from New York, who does burlesque to MJ fused with mime moves. The artists contemplate make up and drag, doing and undoing gender, politics and subjectivity of the body. The story about sex and power repeats, in history and herstory, in different generations and cultures.
