Queef (cm, 2016), Tito (2019)
“[…] The fear women must endure as a result of predation does not truly belong to them – it belongs to the (often) male predators who provoke it. With this in mind, I decided to perform Tito using cross-gender acting to exorcize the fear that echoes through female bodies, and regift it to the male psyche from whom it originates. I also felt a conviction that the best way to communicate these ideas would be through an unusually physical, silent, almost clown-like performance. I wanted to bring a comic universality to my performance of this character which could be accessed from a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives. I aim for Tito to act as a lightning rod for emotional recognition in women, and a catalyst for empathy in men who, consciouslyor unconsciously, objectify them.”
