My big sister taught me this lap dance
Open your legs. Put your hands by your side. No touching.
Inside a small red lit booth Rosana Cade performs the lap dance their older sister used to perform professionally. This intimate exchange between performer and audience explores how we view the naked female body in different contexts. Through the repetition of the dance, the manipulation of our gaze, and the use of interview excerpts, a unique feminist dialogue between two sisters is revealed.
First performed in Glasgow in 2012, this version of the work reflects on the three-year journey Rosana and their sister went on collaborating to make and tour a theatre show together called Sister.
