What adolescent events, personally and politically, shape performance of gender as 20-somethings? At a young age dance artists Aliina Lindroos and Susie Yugler were both called lautas (or ironing board, i.e., “she’s flat as a board [lauta]”). LAUTA aims to understand how childhood heartbreak, trauma, and loss, echo in the body. The work investigates the female gaze and the implications of a feminized body in multiple modes of performance.
