During What You See Festival, four artists will go on a mini-residence in Het Huis Utrecht. All four of these artists-in-residence deal with gender and identity issues in different ways and open their studio doors to the curious public on Saturday afternoon.
Simon(e) van Saarloos & Rahel Crawford Barra
Philosopher, writer and queer woman Simon(e) van Saarloos and the German performer and author Rahel Crawford Barra explore together their fascination and desire for strength and muscles. Fat is a feminist issue, wrote psychotherapist and author Susie Orbach. But what about muscle? Is the muscle a feminist issue?
Donna Chittick is a versatile dancer who has been performing in performances of Backbone by Alida Dors for years. In her debut Together she uses hip-hop to zoom in on the different phases of a woman's life and asks how the environment and fellow human beings influence our being.
Physical theater maker Franziska Menge elaborates on her fascination for the attraction that soldiers have on both men and women. What iconic image of masculinity do they show and what desires, fears and wishes do we project onto these men and their potential death?
What You See is positively activist, inviting and connecting. Join us in building a gender diverse and inclusive world.
