Orlando (1992): A Visualisation of the Performativity of Gender

The film Orlando creates a simplified version of Virginia Woolf’s story by focusing predominantly on how the main character, Orlando, is positioned in society in relation to other people as a man and how that changes once he transitions to woman. The film is a visual representation of how gender is a ‘role’ one can take on and ‘perform’ accordingly while simultaneously being critical of the implications that come with ‘doing’ a certain established gender. The contextualisation of this in the framework of transgender studies and gender studies, with a specific focus on Judith Butler’s concept of gender performativity, will be the groundwork for this analysis of the film Orlando.
