Dancing Alone (Don’t Leave Me) by artist Susie Wong is an immersive video installation of solitary women dancing freely, evoking imagery of dance halls in the 1950s and 60s. Referencing a line from the film, The King and I: “no woman would dance alone while a man is looking at her,” the exhibition alludes to the consumed representations of women in media that are re-enacted in the everyday. The dancers in Wong’s videos evoke both the desire to be freed from these tropes and at the same time to themselves consume by reinforcing them through the culturally infusive practices of a modern society. Through dance, she is both empowered and subjugated.
