香蕉人 / Banana man: yellow on the outside, white on the inside.

A prejudice carried by people of Chinese origin who are not from where they appear to be, one of the concepts that unites Junyi Sun and Bruce Lee.

Am I Bruce Lee is an investigation on identity from the points of connection and parallels that Junyi has with the popular character of the seventies, from the origin, personal development and professional career, to his ideals or desires.

In this tragicomic performance, dance and martial arts meet with the aim of exposing racism on stage. A journey that aims to make the audience reflect on the role we play in changing stereotypes and clichés rooted in our subconscious.
