Big Head/Small Neck

The on-site version of Big Head/Small Neck premiered in conversation with the Trans Trans exhibit at the Nickle Galleries on June 1, 2016. Using both installation and traditional performance modes, Big Head/Small Neck (on site) examines the medicalization and modification of trans/gendered bodies through wit, satire, and precision. With a script by Melanie Kloetzel and Scottish playwright/performer Rose Ruane and set to the familiar strains of Tchaikovsky, Big Head/Small Neck skewers societal expectations of behavior in relation to gender and sexuality. Presented as part of the Gender and Sexual Security Symposium as part of the 2016 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences.
