Lick the scar, enter the wound is a 33 minutes long investigation of a normally-long-durational-performance-artist on what is residing in Queer body from the Global South in the sense of vulnerability and strength. By combining oriental and queer aesthetics and employing a ritualistic movement dynamics, the performance questions embodied resistance strategies against conservative, cis-heteropatriarchal repressive regimes as well as attempts to break down exoticization and fetishisation of the Global Southern Queerness.
