More about XXY

XXY can be described as a performance installation inserted into a scenic connection, where the visual arts’ effects took the stage design’s place. Jørgensen and Johannesen entered the roles as man and woman, creating each their solo performed simultaneously in a visual-physical setting. As if they were in a laboratory they performed male and female rituals in interaction with movement, objects and use of video camera.
