At The Cusp of One Thing
Judith Butler is an American philosopher who asserts that gender is a performative act. At the Cusp of One Thing and Another is about an individual and her relationship to the strong, joyous, monstrous, vile, and beautiful array of what it means to be female/female identifying. In developing this piece it felt necessary, and a bit crazy to have a large group of female bodies claiming space and proclaiming self ownership. I am unabashedly grateful, and appreciative to each woman that is sharing the stage with me tonight. As I continue to explore this work I am eager to include more female identifying people of color, non heteronormative, and people with disabilities in an effort to perform with the widest array of female identifying bodies. This work is about going beyond simple binary options and exploring the many things that make up each individuals' gender identity.
