Magical Teaser

Play Video

Magical, a collaboration between Juren (performer) and Dorsen (director), places the canon of historical feminist performance into the context of a magic show. Through the rituals of illusion, trickery, and transformation the audience is shown the contradictions of contemporary feminism, contemporary art by women, and the contemporary female body. Juren devotes herself to the efficacy of the female body – a body that is (in a way) liberated, yet embattled (but isn’t supposed to be).Please note this performance contains nudity.

Jan 15-19 as part of COIL 2013
