Gender binary affects us all. This workshop offers a physical and reflective exploration of one's own relationship to their gender and gender expression. Socialised experiences of femininity and masculinity run deep in our bodies, affecting how we navigate social codes, expectations, power structures and emotions. Through a guided physical journey we will begin to investigate the gender binary and stereotypes that limit us and where we may find freedom from this binary.

How does gender affect our behaviour and choice making? What belongs to us and what is deeply embedded projection and conditioning? Participants are invited to have a personal experience of self-discovery and self-connection in a communal setting through the body and to discover what arises in them when the gender binary is challenged. This dance workshop is open to everyone.
