THE WOMAN HOUSE
Year Premiered: 2015
The WOMAN HOUSE is an eye catching quartet
in which four female performers abandon their feminine worlds to step into a male universe where they transform themselves into men and question their masculinities.
What is it to be man? Is this the same as being masculine? Does your body define your gender?
Where does the masculine begin and the feminine end?
With these questions in mind the lines between constructed maleness and their own female bodies are explored.
Together they mock, fight and frenzy as they embark on a bizarre journey.
The WOMAN HOUSE was awarded for best performance in Denmark by the Danish Scholarship Committee in 2015 and was selected as an Aerowaves top twenty performance in 2015.
