“Dong Xuan” retells a version of the German fairy tale Hansel and Gretel through a series of physical, geographical, and linguistic shifts. The title refers to a Berlin-based Vietnamese market where the video was filmed. The market is modeled after the Dong Xuan Market in Vietnam, the largest indoor market in Hanoi. The performers, both of German-Asian descent, wander through an artificial forest lost within aisles of plastic fauna.
