EveryWoman

By Priya Saujani, Jan 3 2012 09:04PM

EveryWoman is based on the extreme female identity and my struggle to grasp it. It was a coming of age piece where i was in the liminal between education to a working woman. It focuses on the roles a woman may take on, with in one life time one could play many roles - a mother, lover, friend, sister.


Through study of Freudian theories and religious thesis I have bound the bi-polar qualities of a woman to my performance. I attempt to physichalise these stereotypical notions, theories of women particularly through what I wear in the performance, my costume becomes fetishized to emphasise femininity, its shape and form.


Why do we have to be either or - I am goddess and the whore.
