"Put On: Wearing Gender" A Performance by Chelsea Roberts

On Thursday, April 26th, Chelsea Roberts, a local Lansing artist and senior at Michigan State University, will give a performance at (SCENE) Metrospace entitled "Put-On: Wearing Gender."

The work focuses on Roberts' desire to explore gender as being socially constructed on the body via clothing.

Through spoken words, audio-effects, movement, dressing and undressing, Roberts will use this performance to draw focus to and create dialogue around the pieces of our wardrobe that signify gender.

This piece is influenced by Roberts' research into performance art and fashion theory, but it is also a personal work that draws from her experiences as an artist and as a woman.

Roberts is working under the supervision of Dr. Melissa Thompson in order to research, write, and realize "Put-On." Roberts' past work in Lansing has included collage installations at Basement 414 and The Creole Gallery, as well as musical performances at The Root Cellar and Mac's Bar.

This performance will run roughly 45 minutes. Doors at 7 p.m. Show at 7:30 p.m. Free to the public.
