The Other ‘D’ / sissyboy
As part of the symposium The Other ‘D’: Locating the ‘D’ance in Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies in Canada — The Dietrich Group will be presenting an excerpt from the 2008 pivotal work — LADY: Images in a Melodramatic Setting. Inspired by DH Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover, LADY follows a woman — her mythology, her sexuality, her stories — into the clutches of any one notion of ‘identity’. Is her identity hers alone? Or is she an idea the audience has formed of her through images that resonate with iconic, yet unsettling familiarity?
This excerpt we refer to as ‘the sissyboy duet’ features dance artist Damian Norman, Sebastian Hirtenstein and Danielle Baskerville.
