DYAD performance is a work on Duality observed from the perspective of two women representing diametrically opposed female experiences and sexual lifestyles: an exploration into the elasticity of boundaries, the overlapping of identities and the seeming impossibility of operating in both domains. This performance was largely developed during a residency in Istanbul which unexpectedly and significantly coincided with the Turkish large-scale socio-political unrest of Spring 2013. The work in its entirety also investigates the relationship between violence, power, sexuality and gender identity, whilst examining the micro/macro dichotomy between subject and object, observer and observed, individual and collective.
