Xe, Ze, Ve, E, Te, Sie, Thon, Tey, Ey, Per, Peh, Fae….

Language creates awareness and reinforces stereotypes, but what if the words that exist are not enough to describe one’s identity? Male, female, both or neither… It is difficult to describe in depth what has long been the reality. Gender queer, fluid, LGBTIQ+, the conservative division of roles based on biological sex is far outdated. However, do our language and co-existence reflect this change?

What effect do words have on us and how does language influence one’s gender orientation? How do we experience and perceive people in relation to the pronouns used? How do certain meanings of a word become established and what cultural, political and ethical influence do these have on us and our bodies?

Gender socialisation as a construct of society and the inexhaustible existence of each of us beyond the physical body form the central aspects that are the focus of this project. 

Supported by the NATIONAL PERFORMANCE NETWORK – STEPPING OUT, funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media as part of the NEUSTART KULTUR. Aid Programme Dance. 

Furthermore supported and funded by the Kulturamt Mannheim and the Landesbank Baden-Württemberg.

Language creates awareness and reinforces stereotypes, but what if the vocabulary is not enough to describe one’s identity? Woman, man, both or neither… It is difficult to describe in words what have long been realities. Gender queer, fluid, LGBTIQ+, the conservative division of roles based on biological sex is far outdated. However, do our language and togetherness follow this change?
What do words do to us and what influence does language have on gender orientation? How do we experience and perceive people in relation to the pronouns used? How do certain meanings of a word become established and what cultural, political and ethical influence do these have on us and our bodies?

Gender socialisation as a construct of society and the inexhaustible existence of each of us beyond the physical body form the central aspects that are the focus of this project. The dance installation in the rooms of the old Stromwerk and the interactive dance film deal with these themes in an trans-disciplinary and multimedia way.

Supported by the NATIONAL PERFORMANCE NETWORK – STEPPING OUT, funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media as part of the NEUSTART KULTUR initiative. Aid Programme Dance.
Furthermore supported and funded by the Kulturamt Mannheim and the Landesbank Baden-Württemberg.

The project was partly created at the Inter-Actions Studio in Heidelberg. #StudioActions
