Sacred Kaltenthaler: Hello, my name is Sacred

Bird Feather

Gibney proudly presents an evening of work by Professional Training Student Sacred Kaltenthaler!

Hello, my name is Sacred is a solo piece with movement, music, and words. How much of being yourself is being someone else’s idea of yourself? This question is explored along with how language empowers and disempowers an individual, the meaning and implications of gender performance, the sanctions imposed upon the body by gender, and the cis perspective of transness.
