Performing the self & staging agency
When I feel like crying it’s political is a performance created through devised techniques, combining director-driven dramaturgy with content generated by the actresses-performers, in a process shifting the role of the director into one of a curator. Centered on self-representation, the work proposes a frame for empowerment while approaching sensible themes, such as the hierarchy of power in theatrical contexts (vocational schools and professional theatres) and the objectification of female performers. This paper contextualizes the concept and artistic process of the work, while proposing a work model based on care and owning differences.
