Jane-Alison McKinney explores chaotic sides of her personality in her own work There she was. At first androgynous and fully embodied, she grows into a monstrous rendering of her femininity. Little by little, she becomes larger than life, completely assuming this version which stands in contrast to her own being.

∞POSTX∞ by Geneviève Smith-Courtois shows two women, two solos and asks how do we shake up our limits without necessarily pushing them? First, a performer constructs and deconstructs feminine imagery using thigh-high boots and upper-body spiral movements. Then, on her back, another continues the search for infinite motion as she revisits pivotal moments in her life.
