I'm shrinking, sorry

[11 minutes]

An embodiment of the learned gendered behaviour of shrinking and its relationship to one’s sense of entitlement in the world.  Walking the line between the absurd and the darkly humorous, the work looks at what it is to live in a state of apology as courtesy.  Inspired by the slam poetry of Lily Myers.
