Performing Gender
Date du début: 1 mai 2013,

Performing Gender is a project created in partnership between Comitato Provinciale Arcigay Il Cassero / Gender Bender Festival (Italy), Dutch Dance Festival (The Netherlands), Paso a 2 Plataforma Coreográfica Asociación Cultural (Spain) and Domino / Queer Zagreb (Croatia).Performing Gender uses artistic and cultural tools to open up a civil reflection on gender and sexual orientation differences, seen as sources of values and richness for the whole European society.The project does so by inviting sixteen artists from four countries to carry out an international dialogue on these topics, investigating through different art forms the representation of these new political and cultural identities. The first year, four international workshops are dedicated to research, exchanges and confrontations. The second year the artists are asked to produce performances to be staged in established and renowned European museums, as part of their collection, in order to portray these new forms of identities in front of to the wider possible audience.During the two years the artistic process is opened up and challenged in several different ways: the artist meet local community groups, listen to the stories witnessed by representatives from the LGBT community and interact with the museums curators and collections, in an interdisciplinary approach.A wide dissemination is assured, through audiovisual products (photo and documentaries) touring among the partner cities and a final "Performing Gender Catalogue" build in collaboration with the associated museum partners. The reflection goes on also on the internet thanks to a web platform for artists and critics. A final international symposium will be the occasion to share the outcomes of the project with citizens, associations and institutions.
