Through these workshops, intricate layers of gender, identity, and political relationships are formed. Performers and participants put various ideas of the body into practice, to allow the body to serve as a more meaningful tool or medium in the process of examining the subjectivity of performance. We use analysis and deconstruction to re-examine this subjectivity and the ambiguity of the body in post-modern Asia. Through drills that emphasize the body and the senses, performers lead participants into an awareness of a multi-dimensional space formed by both desire and constraint.
