The Wider Image: Shanghai's 'voguing' dancers step lightly to avoid official gaze
House of Kawakubo members Sui Kawakubo, 25, Tinora Kawakubo, 27, and VJ Kawakubo, 30, (L-R) tell jokes at Sui's house in Shanghai, China, May 8, 2023. VJ was one of the city's earliest adopters of voguing, drawn to a dance class seven years ago. Although the performance aspect of voguing is important, he said, its ability to bring people together gave the scene deeper meaning. "If you are just dancing by yourself, there is no meaning in that," said VJ "The most important thing for me is that it's a comfortable environment."
