"u n C U T " - installation on identity, sexuality & gender

"unCUT" is dance-theatre video-installation & website on sexuality, gender and masculinity. It revolves around 3 triplates with different sexual identities:

a) the terms masculinity and manhood are discussed by the dancer Joshua, a danish homosexual man;
b) the meaning of normality, beauty and love are reflected in the life of the actress, singer & queer-activist Eva, a sophisticated danish transsexual woman (on the picture above & video below);
c) male values and norms are mirrored in David’s actions, a busy modern danish hegemonic-heterosexual man.
Apart from these aspects the soundtrack gives voice to real people that L-O-B-O has met and interviewed in whole Scandinavia including expert-academicians in the fiels of gender and identity.
