You Don’t Own Me


A collaboration with Tina Dillman
Performed at  the BT&C Gallery, Buffalo, NY, 2015

 

You Don’t Own Me is an interactive performance that delves into the complexities of exploitation, femininity and the relational roles of gender. By flirting with power, subversive positions will be reversed and the spectator will become a key player in the unfolding of the piece.

Now you stand in our box, the box that you gave us that we gave back to you. Yours was not gifted an economy based on generosity but we make sure when you are us you feel ok. Our box was never fur lined, and no one gave us a glass of wine when we came through that door. Our box didn’t have any windows and everybody keeps talking about the glass ceiling, but its pitch fucking black in here and no one can see us, and no one can hear us.

 
EVERYTHING IS OPTIONAL BUT I WANT TO BE SUCCESSFUL
