Make Me Think Us


They look at us

Wondering why we are

Wondering how you and I

Became us

Make Me Think Us is a duet between a man and a woman in which they externalize the intimacy of a relationship. They research if the binary gender norm is still relevant in our society. Through the use of different characters they play with the varieties of gender.
