Gender as a Performance
“How do we perform gender? Ali explores this question though their lens as a queer comedy performer”. How do we perform gender and in what ways does this limit our potential? Through the lens of my experience as a queer comedy performer and teacher, I seek to show how we perform gender in everyday life and on stage, often to our own and societies' detriment. I will explore the idea that by opening ourselves up to the possibility of fluid and non-binary gender expression we can become more open, generous performers and members of society.
