Performativity defines us but not, necessarily; to others. I enact and embody the role of white, elderly, middle class , large C Conservative, amiable , all round good guy. Others may put a different spin upon said performativity. As far as 'soul' goes.. pick your tradition. I tend towards .."We are all of us eternal spirits temporarily inhabiting our current flesh and bone bodies." Others have different, equally valid and , for want of empirical evidence; equally subjective; narratives. It's all good.
