Performance: Open-Shut Narratives of an “Intense” Woman (of color)
Performance: “She’s too much”
Chicago 2016, 2017
Who is an intense individual? Who is an intense woman? Does gender define intensity? Does emotionality define gender? Who gets to label and who lives the label? How do we other the intensity, disown it fragment it and push away, so we feel better?
How does an intersectional approach view intensity- is intensity itself intense or are we, as a society, so numb, we numb our own intensity?
