In order to further the rights and recognize the humanity of every person left out of the dominant discourse, it is important to question what can be done through art to problematize the effect of the radically dramatized division between the conceptions of male and female in our Western culture. By breaking open assumptions of ‘natural gender divisions’ we open up a world of possible identities and embodiments. My investigation is movement and performance based and will conclude in both a written thesis and a live dance concert performed in Myers Studio.
