Reaching Within is a work which explores embodiment and the performance of gender within the context of a solo recital in a concert space. The work was conceived as part of a body of research into the gendered-body and its relationship to the structures and conventions of classical music, audience and performer prejudices, and freedom of expression within the Western Art Music tradition.
