THE FALLEN GENDER
The Fallen Gender is an interdisciplinary performance and installation project which takes an intimate look at how we submit to gender roles imposed by the society and rethinks the binary cis-tem which interprets identities and relations on a bipolar framework, as well as placing this template within the body, to examine the conflict between our perception of our bodies which are the first house our souls live in, and the societies’ perception of it.
It takes a look at this house, this host of memories and traumas to understand its movement patterns. Could a house move? How does foundational level conflict affect our structure and our navigation through a binary, heteronormative system that denies new identities and shelters?
