A live performance integrating Hetain Patel’s video works, The First Dance and To Dance Like Your Dad.
Hetain Patels work uses imitation as a tool to explore cultural identity. In this performance, To Dance Like Your Dad and First Dance, both films by the artist, become Patels central focus as a starting point, to deliver an intentionally humorous monologue considering whether culture is imitated, nurtured or natural.
