About the installation:
Gender Monologues is an interactive media installation challenging our historical and cultural understanding of gender beyond stereotypes.
We experience life-size video portraits of actors and actresses, performing their dream character of the opposite sex. The monologues, chosen by the actors themselves, are extracted from or inspired by lines delivered by remarkable characters in drama and literature both historical and contemporary. They are portraits of our time containing speeches and visions that bring revealing thoughts and deep conversations about identity, revolution and desire in what feels like a personal confrontation with each actor.

Abke Haring as Hamlet (NL)
Claron McFadden as Orpheus (USA)
