Duck Rabbit is a short 'double' film imagining the correspondence between Pamela Carter’s two grandmothers, Chia Miau Lang in Singapore and Phyllis Carter in Lancaster. Both were born around the turn of the 20th century and never met one another in real life.
Carter, a writer for performance – in theatre, opera, the visual arts, and dance, explores colonial heritage and mixed-race identity by offering two digital journeys using photographs inherited from her parents.
The third of CAN’s six digital commissions, this work is co-commissioned with Yellow Earth Theatre.
