What if you were coming from a neutral world and, all of a sudden, everything had a gender? The Iranian dancer, Sorour Darabi has a personal answer to this question. In her/his mother tongue, Farsi, there is neither a masculine nor a feminine form. Ever since she/he has been living in France, she/he continues to find ways of adapting to a world in which literally everything is either masculine or feminine. With no exception. 

In Farsi, the word « gender » is pronounced «جنسیت jenssiat », which means material. When it applies to objects, it refers to their materiality. When it applies to living beings, humans or animals, it refers to their sexes.

Therefore, in her/his language, the “gender of the table is wood.”

So, is her/his gender the skin, the flesh, the bones, the muscles, the blood, the blood vessels, the capillaries, the cells…?
