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 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.
