BACK TO SAVE
Back to save the world is a performance research project about the deconstruction and reconstruction of the representation of the human body, with reference to shame and privilege in terms of gender identity.
The world, the focus of this work is on the puzzle body or Frankenstein body, a body assembled from multiple shame- and privilege-related body parts. Privilege is referred to here as the ability to avoid or confront a shameful event. The field of action of shame is gender identity.
The project thus intends to offer unspoken perspectives of dealing with shame through the presentation of body and movement. The manifestation of gender becomes a play of super-shame people, of moving bodies with expanded capacities in shame recognition and resilience. They are the bearers of perspective on a currently fogged subject and they are back to save the world.
