Vit gestalt is inspired by the research around the issue of female oppression within societies. This piece discusses her social restrictions whilst portraying her as a proud and strong creature, fighting for recognition. Kent utilizes the mediums of performance and live-art in order to discuss this matter. Vit gestalt delivers a strong visual and expressive image by blending subtle and grotesque expression, through a structured improvisation of movement and voice.
It has been performed in various settings indoors and outdoors as an ongoing installation and shorter performance. Duration has varied between 30 min up to 2 hours.
