Do You Hit Girls?
performance


 

In Do You Hit Girls? I invited a male opponent to participate in a Kick-Boxing fighting performance. It was an aggressive fight, between two people of similar weight and similar training experience, in which I tried to explore the strengths and the limits of the/my female body. I wanted to raise questions relating to consent, boundaries and sex segregation in sports, challenging the social taboo of violence against women by adding the factors of consent, sport’s rules, and a predetermined time and space for it to happen. It took place at Tempting Failure festival of performance in 2018.
