Talking about PARADIGM in this multimedia performance aims to look closer at a thought pattern which is of great importance for Vietnamese culture. On this occasion it is about the worship of the Mẫu (mother) and its origins from archaic times and the tradition of feudalism. The performance re-questions whether there is a dividing line between the above extremes, where the intersections are, and the goal of the "discussion" is to find personal identity among the social identity. How does an individual identity really exist in a multitude of different cultural overlays and how will variations of each affect the culture?
