Production Details / Press Releases
SCHNECKE (SNAIL) is an interdisciplinary, interactive, queer, biomimetic performance created by the arts collective T3. Schnecke wants to rethink cultural binarism, categorizations and biological identities. Focusing the investigation in intersexuality, Schnecke visualizes how bodies are handled, shaped, educated and modificated in order to be controlled. Schnecke invites the audience to decrypt perception, to keep in mind that differences contribute to the construction of a more egalitarian and richer society. Generating an inner discussion, we provide the audience with basic tools to consider who we are and how much does it mean to be culturally unrecognizable. Our aim is to explore through the performative practice strategies and mechanisms of understanding gender, identity, performance experience, space, light, technology, new body representations, politics and collectivism.
