Sex Status 2.0 takes Simone de Beauvoir's 1949 feminist masterpiece "The Second Sex" as a jumping off point for a different take on dance performance; exploring our conditioning as women and what still needs to be uncovered, or shifted. What is authentic femininity? Where does our power lie? What are our deepest desires?
Created by choreographer Carrie Ahern in collaboration with performers Carolyn Hall, Kelly Hayes, Donna Costello, Elke Rindfleisch, Anne Parichon, Jennifer Chin; composer Starr Busby, and lighting designer Jay Ryan.
This diverse group of female performers partners with door jambs, end tables, window sills and the audience in dutiful, wild, uncomfortable, funny and surprising explorations through the 'Female Gaze', 'Touch Preferences/Consent' and an 'Audience Sex/Cleaning Survey'.
*Each week will be performed in a different location in Brooklyn or Manhattan
