“SiSi” is a breakdance move, and “Sissy” is not only the term for an older sister, but also used to describe a queer man who acts like a woman. “Si(e)Si” deals with the subject of breakdance and transfers the form of a 360degrees performance to the theatre context. It also investigates the movement patterns of B-Girls (aged 8 to 38) in the context of sex and gender identities. This reflexion reacts to the fact that in breakdance, women often imitate a male body and don’t adapt the moves to their own bodies and possibilities. The performance also deals with the history of B-Girling and searches for women’s breakout attempts which led to the development of other movement patterns. It then investigates whether these attempts have already formed a new sort of vocabulary. This performance is being developed based on the long-term project “B-Girl Circle” and tries to strengthen the role of women who practice b-girling as well as their social reception. Because of their small number they occupy a special position and are only “5mm above the floor”.
