Human Measure

Human Measure, Cassils’ first piece of contemporary dance, made in collaboration with renowned US choreographer Jasmine Albuquerque, and a team of five exceptional trans and non binary performers. Rooted in kinesiology, martial arts, sports science while creating a live cyanotype in real time, Cassils reinterprets Yves Klein’s Anthropometries paintings. Against an unprecedented backdrop of US-based anti-trans legislation, Cassils draws inspiration from personal safety movements. Here, intersectional representations press back against narratives surrounding trans bodies and athleticism. Differing from the passive, cis-gendered female models used in Klein’s work, the marks made by performers in Human Measure reflect a process of empowered labour.
