Gennaro Maione got trained as a ballet and contemporary dancer at “Ballet Teatro Scuola Rossella Rossi” in Naples and in order to refine his skills attends seminars, lectures and workshops in Berlin at the contemporary dance schools Tanzfabrik and Dock 11 and in Brussels at DCJ contemporary dance school and Thor company.
His project Piel il.el takes its cue from the French novel by T. Jonquet “Tarantula”, then played in the movie by Spanish director Pedro Almodovar “The Skin I Live In.”
It is a performance on the theme of identity. What’s identity? Who can really know? Why is there still a need to confuse “gender identity” with “gender role”?
[…] Gender and sex are two separate things, even though the two words are often used interchangeably. Sex is a physical element whereas “Gender” is a component of identity which is placed in the brain.
