First performed for Love is colder than capitalism curated by Hana Janeckova at Hotel Ozone in 2017.

The performance takes the embroidery #myimaginarydick as a starting point for a narration about gender, the transmission of skills and of stories from my grand-mothers and how to use pornography to convey the physicality of a difficult story.

It cycles through material taken from among others Testo junkie by Paul B. Preciado, The subversive stitch by Roszica Parker, Twilight breaking dawn part 2, extract from my grand-mother testimonial about her experience in Auschwitz, Baise-moi by Virginie Despentes.

It explores techniques in lecture performance like priming (how looking or listening to an unrelated text or story will influence how you will read the next piece of information), or the relationship between text and images, and the different texture of attentions (watching someone talk versus reading a scrawling text on screen).

By jumping between disconnected subjects, it forces the spectator to make out those missing links and thus creating new meanings in the gap.

It evolves in each iteration of the performance and is a way for me to weave together all the different strands of my research.
