The Space Between Us


The Space Between Us explores the various power dynamics that can present themselves in a heterosexual relationship. As patriarchy still predominantly dictates the power relations between men and women, these issues present themselves through gendered performances. By representing and at the same time examining my own relationship with my partner, we have developed different exercises that are meant to embody the possible dynamics between female and male energy.

Inspired by personal experiences that occurred during the creation of this project the performances aim to evidence not just the good, but also the difficult times of a romantic relationship. This moving image piece is meant to be displayed over three separate screens, signifying the “space” mentioned in the title as well, in order to further enhance the concept of the physical barrier.
