WeRNotVirus review – responses to a pandemic of racism

T en short play s responding to the rise in racist attacks since the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak have a cumulative power

“We are not a virus,” is a repeated refrain in these 10 quick-response dramas made to raise awareness of the 21% rise in reported hate crimes towards these communities, and amounting to two hours of theatre on film that incorporates animation, poetry, music and dance. Directed by Jennifer Tang and Anthony Lau, many of the shows speak of racist cliches hurled on the street or physical attacks in the supermarket, and also of bigots who swerve away on buses or trains for “fear” of sitting next to someone of Chinese origin at this time.

Several works deliver their message in direct address or monologue, the actor sometimes speaking in verse. The titular piece, written by Lucy Chau Lai-Tuen, is the result of a callout in May to east Asian women who each recorded themselves reading out a line from the script and it is the snappiest and most rousing of these direct addresses. Edited by Joseph Brett in the style of a Twitter video, the women make their statements to camera: “I am not a tourist.” “I am not yellow.” “I do not eat raw bat.” “I am not your diversity.” “I am the retail assistant you made fun of.” “I am you.”
