Short Description
Labels is a performance, new-media and entrepreneurial initiative about dealing with identity in a globalising world. The project is conceptualised at many levels which are web based and played out as performances using stories that draw from people’s lives.
I want to look closely at identities that bear a history of oppression in their context. And drawing from techniques of movement therapy, the project also seeks to develop performances in real life that will be emancipatory for my collaborators. The output of this work is both the blog, and a clothes line which draws from the narratives of my collaborators.
