In this study I elaborate on my art work on gender identity en sexual diversity. I combined gender theory of Judith Butler with dance and performance with a focus on the body. My case study was Performing Gender, a dance and performance project directed at gender identity and expression.
The study concerns the potential performativity of dance and performance in relation to gender. Can performance have an eventual power in questioning sex stereotypes and in portraying alternative images? And more interesting: in what way, how? What is the role of experiencing the body in performing in relation to this potential performativity?
