The Body Project: work-in-progress + symposium on the female body

A 20-minute presentation of The Body Project, followed by a discussion exploring the external and internal pressures that surround female bodies.

Tara Cheyenne Performance
Since 2007, Tara Cheyenne Performance (TCP) has been creating kinetic theatrical expressions through exquisitely realized characters, crafted choreography, a healthy dose of comedy, and lashings of tragedy.
About This Event

After sharing a work-in-progress, we are interested in hearing from artists and community members about their experiences of “body image” and the navigation of this unsteady terrain in their personal and professional lives. By providing a safe and supportive environment for this discussion, we hope to gain insight and gather language and material (when permission is granted) for the creation of the future performance.

The Body Project is a new interdisciplinary performance that will be created from interviews, symposiums, and round-tables with people of diverse ages, backgrounds, and perspectives who identify as non-binary and/or on the femme spectrum. The movement will be mined from our unique struggles with body image, and the comic/tragic relentlessness of “cultural” pressure.
