Eisa Jocson (Philippines) returns to Liveworks, after wowing audiences with her trilogy of works Death of the Pole Dancer, Macho Dancer and Host in 2015.

Corponomy is a new performance lecture that reflects on entertainment, labour and fantasy-production that drive Jocson’s work. From pole dancing to macho dancing; from hostess to princess studies, Jocson’s performances unpack identity and gender formation, seduction politics and Filipino social mobility.

Drawn from the artist’s personal archive of research material, Corponomy is a documentation of movement transmission and training, and a live demonstration of different systems of physical exercise that transform the body.
