The Lipstick

The Lipstick


Six individuals test the limits of their comfort zones and their bodies through rigorous athleticism and aggressive sensuality to confront and contest systems of assimilation and integration. Armed with only a bullet of red lipstick, they transgress borders, binaries, and the complex relationship between identity and geography. Daring, discomfiting and darkly hilarious, The Lipstick presents mystic possibilities of cosmetic transformation while dancing the fine line between what is sacred and profane. It recognizes how strong the desire to belong is, and how potentially dangerous that can be.
