Gender/Power is an in-process collaborative project led by video artist Maya Ciarrocchi and performance artist Kris Grey in which performers and co-creators Becca Blackwell, Massima Selene Desire, Sara Jimenez and Pamela Sneed join Grey onstage in sharing personal feminist, trans and queer narratives within a framework that blurs authorship. More akin to a piece of music than a script, this score is delivered differently during every performance making it impossible to track from whom the stories originated. In addition to the text, choreographer Sandra Parker has generated a movement-based score with vocabulary derived from background research in common coding and action perception.
Conceived and Directed by Maya Ciarrocchi and Kris Grey in collaboration with Sandra Parker, Becca Blackwell, Massima Selene Desire, Sara Jimenez, and Pamela Sneed.
Performed by Massima Selene Desire, Becca Blackwell, Kris Grey, Sara Jimenez, and Pamela Sneed, plus other performers TBA.
