My research field is the use of gesture in traditional Vietnamese music – from the perspective of being a dan tranh instrumentalist with a broad and international experience. The project The choreography of gender in traditional Vietnamese music has a dual starting point: the social change in traditional music from private and male activity to public and female performance, and my encounter with experimental, contemporary and Western forms of music. Main questions concern (i) whether and how my performance in traditional contexts support and transmit conventional gender norms, and (ii) if experimental musical practice can be seen as a tool for changing dominating conceptions of gender.
