Mistermissmissmister

A performance by Ana Borralho & João Galante
Mistermissmissmister is a performative project based on the erotic  imaginary. Questioning the asymmetries that regulate the social  identities and the definitions of male/female, Mistermissmissmister  means to cause strong emotions in the viewer by confronting him/her with  characters whose bodies are extremely exposed and that show a very  obvious gender/sexual ambiguity. The 3 performers (two men and a woman)  are totally naked and their heads transformed through characterization  and make-up so that each one has a different gender from the body he or  she belongs to.

Performance for 3 viewers at each time: sitting face to face to the 3  performers, the public establishes a very intimate (almost loving) and  direct relationship with the performers (eye to eye), with no words and  for an undetermined period, while they listen, repeatedly, to a love  song with headphones (each viewer listens to his own song). It is the  viewer who defines the time of the performance, the kind of relationship  (by choosing a certain performer) and the moment he/she gets up and  cuts off the dynamics, leaving place to another viewer. All other  viewers are put waiting for a sit on the sofa, and, as in a voyeuristic  game, they are free to watch the performance and the relationships  established by others from the outside, choosing to later participate in  the performance or not. 

Borralho, Ana

Depuis 2002, Ana Borralho & João Galante développent une œuvre  protéiforme, détournant et mélangeant les genres, utilisant la  performance, la danse, le son ou la vidéo pour introduire du trouble  dans les catégories représentatives : celles de public et d’interprète,  d’homme et de femme, de réel et de fiction. Chacun de leurs projets met  en place un véritable « dispositif social », débordant les frontières de  la scène pour exposer des parcelles de réalité, comme dans Atlas en 2011, ou Trigger of Happiness, leur dernière création.

Centre national de la danse, Réalisation

Since 2001, the National Center for Dance (CND) has been making recordings of its shows and educational programming and has created resources from these filmed performances (interviews, danced conferences, meetings with artists, demonstrations, major lessons, symposia specialized, thematic arrangements, etc.).
