Fe/Male: Choreography and direction by Jeffrey Peterson and Melissa Rolnick presented at Intermedia Arts
Fe/Male choreographically hypothesizes on gendered power, intimacy, and joy. Repeating the same dances twice: once by an all-female cast and once by an all-male cast, Fe/Male seeks to uncover our preconceptions about the nature of gender.
