The human body has always been a place of control, resistance, discipline and disobedience, and particularly a place where gender roles have been practiced and examined. The body and the corporeality are the viewpoints of this year’s festival.

Through divergent and confrontational union, this Firstborn Girl feminist festival will create one collective body consisted of a multitude of diversities.
