Open your legs. Put your hands by your side. No touching.
Inside a small red lit booth performance artist Rosana Cade performs the lap dance their older sister used to perform professionally. The intimate exchange between performer and audience member sets up a complex web of contradictory visual axes. Through the repetition of the dance, the manipulation of our gaze, and the use of interview excerpts, a unique feminist dialogue between two siblings is revealed.
My Big Sister Taught Me This Lap Dance is performed as part of With Pleasure, guest curated by Eva Neklyaeva. Together with artists and audiences, she invites you to play, and to discover the complexity of sexual expression as we know it today through three days full of performances, film, female porn, podcasts about sex, BDSM, technological evolutions in the sex industry, role-playing and positive sexual education.
