A dance piece along with text reading. In the piece, the body is framed as representation of group identity entrapped between visibility and invisibility under the societal gaze. The conscious scrutiny of the relationship between agency and objectified body creates an mis-en-abyme contestation. The body is regarded as being instrumentalised in porn and in prostitution. Meanwhile, critical reflections on the fetishisation of the body operate more or less on its objectification. Body, then in some ways, is exposed to the public as a tool, while in others it is objectified and privatised. Arriving at the discursive limits, the performance attempts to imagine an exit by “abjectify-ing” representations.
