Placing the Armpit

Lecture Performance
Written and presented by Betina Abi Habib
Location: Pastoe Fabriek Utrecht
Duration: 40 minutes

“Removing the armpit hair is not a functional way of shaping my armpit. It is a political social performance of my body, of my identity. This place has been performed, so regularly and so consistently that it has become unquestionable for some. This is why I bring it back to myself and to others as a performance.”
