Haircut

‘Haircut’ aimed to question heteronormative gender expectations regarding presentation and appearance. It explored the cultural and physical manifestations of personal identity and how something as temporal as hair can signify a person’s individuality; or conversely, conceal it.

 

"By asking each audience member to participate in the performance by cutting a piece of my hair, they will have colluded in defying conventional expectations of appearance. By altering my personal appearance, I will be questioning the standards of female beauty in our society and testing the reactions of everyone I interact with. ‘Haircut’ exposes the superficial expectations of the extreme levels of personal grooming most women contend with. By losing my hair to an unknown audience, we as a group are testing our own compliance with our societal norms."
