Binary the Trilogy: TESTO TEMPLE
12.9. – 17.9.
Binary the Trilogy: TESTO TEMPLE will premiere at the 2023 ANTI Festival. The work is a collaboration between Anna Cadia, Minttu Vesala and Exploited Body.
Binary the Trilogy: TESTO TEMPLE is part of Cadia’s doctoral research at the Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki. Their research questions include how to bring something as fragile and elusive as sexuality or gender to the stage, and what kind of a stage is capable of acknowledging nonbinary diversity. This work explores the relationship of sex hormones, specifically testosterone, to non-binary gender identity. Exploited Body, a recognized creator of experimental music, makes the composition of the piece.
Residency Program for Impossible Performance 2022–2023
The Residency Program for Impossible Performance is a part of the Reality Research Center’s main repertoire in 2022–2023. The ANTI Festival in Kuopio serves as its main partner. Reality Research Center selects a residency artist through an open call, and the residency produces a performance unlike anything seen before. Unlike in previous programmes, the residency work now takes time over the course of two years.
