Restrictions

Dancing – Nonverbal – Intergroup dynamics

In our culture, the way we are gendered restricts how and where we are permitted to move our bodies. Men and women in our society have distinctly different body-language,interact in different ways and and feel welcome in different spaces.

This scenario explores these differences. It is played with movement only, wordlessly. Using only your body and playing with exaggerated stereotypes, you will magnify these patterns and thereby make them visible. Together, we will examine how the physical restrictions on our movements shapes our ability to interact and form relationships with others.

Furthermore, we hope you will simply have fun and enjoy moving together.
