Synopsis

Who said fear, shame, hide yourself? Fuck it! We’re visible, disobedient and dissident bodies that do not want to be reduced to the dichotomic categories of gender, nor repressed by society.

As Peter Lemebel said “… the body as a platform to dismantle the cultural symbologies structuring society, especially those referring to the division between the male and the female”

Concept

The topic will be presented with frailty, provocation, aggressivity, humour and responsibility by means of very physical and contemporary language. Some of the performers will be volunteers from the local collective nearby the venue.

The aim of the project is to put in light these disobedient and dissident bodies and thoughts, the acceptation of sexuality, the vanishing of gender as a solution to inequality. W also want to present the experiment that any of us can be female, male and anything in between in one and the same body.
