Lithuanian, Amsterdam-based artist Eglè Budvytytè (b. 1982) is interested in how certain gestures might challenge the codes and conventions that implicitly govern the everyday. Her performance is an itinerant work featuring 9 male performers clad in uniforms that are at once military and effeminate. They jog along throughout the city while carrying out a series of unlikely actions that trouble traditional perceptions of western masculinity, and in doing so, transform expectations of male, group behavior into something quite harmless and unexpected.
