Over the last few decades, the differences between both sexes have been blurring. Unisex has come to the fore. In this performance, the human being is shown as impersonal, androgenic material, made of flesh and its unlimited possibilities. ‘Nondescript’ balances on the indefinite and speculative line between terms ‘sex’ and ‘gender’. By presenting the phenomenon of blurring of the sexes, it draws attention to the consequences of its risk of dehumanisation.
