I am what I am was my first collaboration with Lab Station who are part of Platform Performance
We started with a curiosity around gender and what it means to define oneself through gender. Over a few months we explored many questions: what is it to be a man? What is it to be a woman? Does it matter? Is it as simple as that? Is it biological? Should it be important in an increasingly liberal society?
The performance is a collection of images, scenes and choreography created in response to our thoughts and feelings on gender.
I am what I am was performed in April 2014 at Platform before touring to the National Festival of Youth Theatre in Glenrothes Hall
I am what I am was performed by:
