Hetain Patel: Me and Me Dad and Me Wife

Hetain Patel First Dance

A live performance integrating Hetain Patel's video works, The First Dance and To Dance Like Your Dad

Hetain Patel’s 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 Patel’s central focus as a starting point, to deliver an intentionally humorous monologue considering whether culture is imitated, nurtured or natural.
