ReDoing GENDER

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brutal, emotional and with high impact, ReDoing GENDER is an Award winning performance that offers a visually stunning universe. The performance addresses the struggles queer men face when not conforming to social codes of normative masculinity.

 

Themes of patriarchy and power are portrayed through an imaginative setting that see the stage transformed into an animal testing facility. In the laboratory resides’ a researcher and his subject: an ape. The ape unwillingly embarks upon a series of experiments and correctional treatments, aimed at conditioning gendered behavior to align with sex.


The results are a breathtaking visual story that invokes empathy and questions social attitudes towards what it means to be a man.
