DUTCH PREMIER: 12th & 13th of MAY, 20:30,
Gender Fuck[er] is a full length performance which breaths between a rock concert, a tragedy and a night club. The work set to question the roles and perception of the male looking onto a female, taking it out of the traditional condition by morphing the female into a male and vice versa. Through this collaboration both artists bring together two perspectives, a female and male onto one body, exploring the fluidity of identity through the physical, emotional and contextual perception of gender. The work challenges the division of roles by unleashing and building a masculine conviction within a vulnerable yet powerful female body looking into heterosexuality through a queer gaze.
Special Pop-Up performance lecture by Chris Schenlaer a Swedish trans actress, dramatist, diplomat and director of Culture.
From the press:
“Keren shifts between small and out-acting movement, swaying between male and female. With a surrealistic imagery she creates a multi faceted performance about gender, identity and power.”
– Ingela Brovik, Danstidningen
“Rosenberg transforms her body from masculine to famine throughout with astonishing movement and physical change.” Hanna Gosling, Sadler’s Wells reviews
