Mantawoman, alter ego of yangqin extraordinaire Reylon Yount, premieres her musical extravaganza about the heartbreaking beauty of change. Presented by Tangram.

YANG QUEEN is a kaleidoscopic experience of music, movement, animation and video art, centered upon the iridescent sound of the  yangqin (a Chinese percussive string instrument) and Mantawoman’s charismatic performance style. Featured works include the Sundance Award-winning short film Reneepoptosis, Ben Nobuto’s i carry your heart for flute, yangqin and electronics, as well as original hypnopop songs by Mantawoman.

Tangram is a London-based artist collective nurturing transnational community by creatively celebrating Chinese cultures, mainly through music. Launched in 2019, they are currently Associate Artists at LSO St Luke’s, co-directed by Mantawoman and Alex Ho.

The concert will finish at approximately 8.40pm, with a 20 minute interval.

Please note this performance may contain flashing lights and haze. The short film Reneepoptosis contains nude animated characters and some explicit language.
