Make Me Think Us
They look at us
Wondering why we are
Wondering how you and I
Make Me Think Us is a duet between two performers in which they externalise a curious search for gender fluidity.
We grow up in a world with a binary gender norm that eventually manifests itself in our personalities. How can we break loose from that construction? And is it still relevant?
Through the use of state work and costumes the performers create different personas and play with different varieties of gender identities.
