Female gender identity has historically been essentially defined by the supposed ‘lack’ of the phallus. Choreographer Julia B. Laperrière explores this problematic view from a queer-feminist perspective and uses the strap-on as a transformative tool. What does it feel like to wear a penis? How does it affect the way we move? Julia B. Laperrière examines the connections between sexual attraction, sex and gender and, together with musician Pia Achternkamp, embarks on a search for an alternative female sexuality without shame.
Julia B. Laperrière is a French-Canadian choreographer based in Berlin since 2016. As an artist navigating between Berlin, Montpellier and Montreal, the heterogeneous mix of languages, places, practices, people and genres —both artistic and identity related— constitute an integral part of her practice. Lately, she has been interested in the representations of the female body on stage, new intimacies and dangerous dances. Julia and Pia collaborate since 2020.
