A video enquiry and a theatrical performance to stage a reflection on stereotypes and gender violence.
Using different languages and skills, integrating emotional dimensions and reflective processes, the aim is to investigate those cultural constructs, attitudes and role assumptions that produce discrimination, violence, distorted exercise of power, but also guilt, inadequacy, lack of awareness of the processes of social and cultural change necessary for a co-evolution of men and women.
The event originates from a sociological reflection on the relationship between socialisation and gender stereotypes, initiated at the University of Bergamo and published in the essay by C. Ottaviano and L. Mentasti, Oltre i destini. Attraversamenti del femminile e del maschile, Ediesse, Rome 2015.
