‘The Unlearning’ follows a performer through a journey of self-reflection, whilst traversing through societal structures of masculinity. Acknowledging the jarring rigidity of traditional masculine ideologies, he ponders the relationship he holds with himself, commences exploring intimacy and a memory for his body, constantly reassessing, and tending to his relationship with his physical body above all else.
