HeEre is the whole scheudle of the day:
4:30-5:30 pm - The Personal is Political Body Movement Workshop
Gender and Performance in Everyday Life: a theatre and movement workshop by Sukriti Khurana. Through this workshop, the participants will be encouraged to look at how gendered bodies are constructed in the performance of everyday and how we develop and interrogate different meanings around our bodies through performance practices in everyday life. Specifically, we will analyze how body and gender are regulated, reinforced, reworked, and subverted through embodied modes of performance. The facilitators also wish to borrow Butler’s concept of gender performativity and explore questions like what is gender? What is the difference between gender and sex? Alongwith theoretical and conceptual discussions the workshop will consist of activities that will unpack core concepts of gender through the lens and medium of performance. Through ice-breakers, improvisations, group activities, video screenings and reflections participants will be encouraged to create a small culmination piece during the process of the workshop.
