When does our view identify a movement, an attitude or a body as typically male or female?  - this question is asked by Doris Stelzer in her new performance “restudied bodies – wo/man“, in which the staging and reality (?) of masculinity is juxtaposed with femininity. In the gender-stereotype-cocktail the female cliché meets the male body and vice versa. After shaking, stirring and mixing to deconstruct stereotypical behaviour “restudied bodies” attempts to answer the question: what is common, what is inbetween - or - what is left apart from the normative binary conception of gender? Is there such a thing as an „unoccupied“ body?
