Jeg er en hermafroditt


Friday 13.07, 18:00





Gender is complex, it’s a system of signs and secret codes. Both dancers and audience must acknowledge their bodies and how they incite a game filled with references of which they have little control. So what happens when we try to make ourselves more aware of these references? In what way can we, as dancers, navigate how we view gender and sexuality when it collides with our bodies, the world around us and our imaginations? Without purposefully wanting to step into each others’ gender, create a third gender or operate with a flat structure, we wish to navigate societal norms around gender. To present something that is free and untethered. Jeg er en hermafroditt is a nuanced dance performance, built upon an expanded human spectrum that challenges concepts such as body, gender and sexuality and examines their definitions.
