Strip Me, Dress Me

This was my first solo performance. It was based on the stereotypical binary gender roles - usually reduced to submissive and dominant power relations - portrayed by women and men in pornographic movies. In ‘Strip Me, Dress Me’ I questioned these roles by putting them in evidence and reversing them, exposing the mechanisms of these ‘normalized’ relationships.
