Demystifying the tit

I am very new to this form of performing art, but it was interesting how Tari used the rubber tit. Through playing with the rubber tit and even bouncing it around with the audience, there was a demystifying of the tit, which is often filled with sexual and maternal connotations. In its place, the piece of flesh, represented by the tit, was deobjectified. As the audience’s (or at least my) inhibitions to playing with the rubber tit diminished, so did their (or my) conceptualization of the breast.
