About Chameleon

Chameleon is a multi‐disciplinary presentation about global citizens who have been exposed to several cultures in their developmental years. Exploring the notions of home, cultural identity and relationships through dance with film, spoken word, music, photography and jewelry design, Chameleon draws on the insight and experience of Third Culture Kids: those who have spent a significant period of time in a culture other than their own.

The documentary film I am a TCK by Alaine Handa is a collection of in‐depth interviews with global citizens, and explores issues of cultural misunderstandings, asks what is home, and shares memories of expatriate lives abroad. Interspersed throughout the film is choreography performed by A.H. Dance Company, with each section of the dance inspired by the individual cultural experiences of the performer.
