Unbuttoned // A festival of gender, art and you

BY Metro Arts | 16-Aug-2016
UNBUTTONED pries open the gap between man and woman to gaze at the space between. A sticky four day program of performance, visual art, film, and party (with some extra stuff to boot!), UNBUTTONED opens up the curly questions; what does it mean to be in these bodies? How do we do gender, how do we un-do gender? What hurts, what thrills and what’s possible?
