WORLD WORKS FOR ALTERED GAZES

IN COLLABORATION WITH & FOR PERFORMANCE ARTIST HOLLY DURANT :

In September 2018 Anastasia La Fey was honoured to be invited to collaborate with performance artist, dancer and friend Holly Durant on her 2019/ 2020 Research Project & new work development WORLD WORKS FOR ALTERED GAZES - re visioning the social and gendered body in performance art and dance: enacting multiple readings of embodiment and future potentialities. Her aim being “to disrupt stubborn structures of the dominant gaze through using her loud, moving, self-authoring, disobedient body in performance to contribute to an altered gaze.”

Anastasia’s role in the project being to, through the creation of wearables, sculptural elements, installation and environmental enhancements, contribute to the “crafting of saturated viewing worlds that investigate and challenge enduring and reductive stereotypes of the body and to the creating of spaces where transgressive transformation can play out.”
