The Female Gaze

The commissioning and premiere of works for female voice, ensemble, and electronics by Whitney George, Gabrielle Herbst, and Gemma Peacocke.

The “Male Gaze” is a narrative trope referring to when a story is crafted by a male for the male perspective—where women play roles as objects of a male narrative. He tells stories about male heroes and women as secondary characters; leaves women as merely tools to drive the male characters.

The project, The Female Gaze is a feminist-take on concept of the male gaze: the creators are women, the vocalists are women, the characters are women, and the intended audience is women. This provides a unique opportunity for women composers and directors to work together to take back their perspectives, to embrace a female purview, and experiment with what a female idiom could entail.

The 2018-19 iteration will be a semi-staged presentation at Roulette (Brooklyn) of three world premiere pieces for female voice, ensemble, and electronics commissioned by FSO from Whitney George, Gabrielle Herbst, and Gemma Peacocke on February 1, 2019.
