The social body shaped by societal expectations, assumptions, and stereotypes, is rarely at rest with a felt sense of who we are. Using this area of conflict and self-construction as a form of resistance to given scripts and preconceived bodies, the artists in DOUBLE TROUBLE assert the power of the doubled body to upend perceptual habits, move the boundaries of the assumed, challenge notions of identity, perform sleights of hand, and to joyously assert powerful new ways of seeing ourselves.
