A series of rehearsals teaching myself how to quite literally "walk like a man". Rehearsals took place over the course of 6 months in various spaces. These performances were most often private and documented through video although sometimes were done with an audience. Techniques evolved through conversations. Some of the most useful advice was:

1. Hold a broom behind your shoulders. (To help set your posture.)
2. Wear men's shoes, they are usually heavier and will help you move differently
3. Pack.
