Our art is challenging, experimental and highly performative. The themes of our performances are diverse, but they all have something
in common: we openly discuss topics that history, mentality and social or political constraints have often silenced. In each show, we

In re-centering subjectivities, which have heretofore rendered invisible, the potential for change that the artists intended to contribute to is fully exploited.”
