Urmaela is a small theatre piece created

for children. The two directors from the South

of France wanted to create a conversation

with children about gender and roles within our society.

The water plays a very important role

in this show, it is a metaphor for the symbiotic

liquid. It is almost a re-birth with the ability

to apprehend gender in a very different way.

Along their journey, the main character

encounters people who trigger and question

their vision on how boys and girls have

to behave in our society from day one.

That is why I created a sea creature displaying

male and female physical characteristics.

There is a notion of perfect gender balance

supported by the known colour duet;

baby pink and baby blue.

 

This character encapsulates the idea that when

it comes to gender, there are no rules but yours.

WATER LILIES

There is an idea of a mystic lac. It describes the idea of the main character walking through

the idea of gender, going from blue to pink, to finally access the ultimate understanding; a mixed coloured water lily. They are taking with them the knowledge and the acceptance of a different idea toward gender.
