“Saigon” is an ongoing field research for a performative solo, where Tony dives into the history of his Vietnamese family in Norway as a template for identity conflicts in our modern society. A story of war refugees, and his parents as “boat people”- the traces that their experiences of war and arrival in a new “home” have left on themselves and in future generations. “Saigon” is on the one hand a confrontation with his personal history and on the other hand also an immersion in an important, if somewhat underestimated, chapter of Norway’s recent history.
