Art performance sparks gender dialogue

This Thursday, Lansing artist Chelsea Roberts gives a theatrical performance titled "Put-On: Wearing Gender" at (SCENE) Metrospace. Roberts’ past work includes collage installments at Basement 414 and Creole Gallery in addition to performances at The Root Cellar and Mac’s Bar. The performance highlights gender as being socially constructed on the body via clothing. Roberts hopes to develop a conversation about pieces in wardrobes that signify gender by utilizing clothing, audio effects, movement and words. The 45-minute piece was inspired by her research on performance art and fashion theory. 7:30 p.m. FREE. (SCENE) Metrospace, 110 Charles St., East Lansing. (517) 319-6832. www.scenemetrospace.com.
