Gender, performance and profession
A conversation with the dance makers leaded by Athena-Maria Enderstein about the interrelations between gender, performance and profession. This event will be a space of participatory co-production where Performing Gender – Dance Makes Differences artists will develop a shared topography of gender, the dynamics of performance as an art form and the structural aspects of dancemaking as a profession. We will explore questions of representation, intersectional interpretation, and the power of small actions with the aim of generating creative possibilities for evocative and transformative dance and art.
