WHITE WOMAN

Presented by Metro Arts

By Jenni Large

How can we see ourselves clearly so that we can act meaningfully?

In this dance-based satire, the artist places herself as the object of interrogation to expose, confront and question intersections between whiteness, femininity, complicity and the transformational potential of self-enquiry.

A repetitious circling, undressed subverting and embracing of discomfort, this personal, political and performative collision of contemporary dance, theatre, sculpture, and audience interaction asks, what is the white woman’s role now? How can we see ourselves clearly so that we can act meaningfully? Can we simultaneously hold on to and let go of ‘self’? How are we complicit?
