“Sometimes a little too much, crossing the boarders, crossing lines yet utterly wonderful, Redoing GENDER 1.5 and The WOMANhouse are certainly something worth experiencing. They will give rise to discussion and reflection”

The committee said about the work:

 

"Choreographer and Performer Andreas Constantinou is a new exciting name on the Danish and international performance and dance scene. With his six-year performance-research project GENDERhouse, Andreas explores the link between gender, sexuality and society. The Woman House is the latest result of this research. The show, which was a quartet of four women dressed as men dressed as women, emphatically and humorously challenged the stereotypical gender roles and sexuality. The Woman House" was a power show, which left the audience breathless and enriched."
