CW: Descriptions of Female Genital Mutilation
Female Genital Mutilation comprises all procedures involving the full or partial removal of the clitoris or other injury to assigned female genital organs for non-medical reasons.
CUT WOMAN is a choreopoem based on Dena Igusti’s poetry about an Indonesian Muslim survivor of female genital mutilation navigating the loss of her people, body, and inevitable demise. She uses her body’s ghost, the internet, and webcams to realize what stays in a world shaped by what is and will be lost.
