The performance, TERESIAS, is inspired by the mythological character of the same name. He was the blind prophet of Thebes, famous for being transformed into a woman for seven years.
I wore cataract lenses to cloud my vision and held my body against a neo classical greek make torso, carved out of ice, to fit my body exactly. Throughout the event I melted the torso with my own body heat enacting his gender transformation. I cast the myth of Teresias as a story of endurance and transformation, in which masculinity both freezes the body, and melts away.
