All the Different Kinds of Sweat
All the Different Kinds of Sweat reflects on the female body as both a creator and a canvas upon which others create, take, and make. Driven by an emotional energy, it explores rape, recovery and art-making through movement, text, and technology. It searches for courage. It sometimes finds it.

Vivisectic researches the representation of stereotypical roles assigned to female body. Performers in the piece are adorned with jewels, and the legs are a luxury artwork, destined to be at a private collection. Regardless they have different gender, they play the same role of traditional female characters: passivity, beauty, lust. They are not sharing moments together, they are sharing the same stigma. The gender shift provokes to reevaluate an origin of those assigned attributes and to pass power to the audience to decide and interpret what is happening.

a farther aspect
Forming from fixation, this is a body on display aware of its position of display. It requests a participatory spectatorship.a farther aspect wants to produce a landscape of reading and recognition inclusive of slippage, elision, fantasy, spectacle, collapse, and suggestion. It is a solo of image-making and (dis)identifications, feeling its way outwards from staring.
