De Warme Winkel & Wunderbaum


Focus: Privacy


English / 90min

Two Dutch performer collectives join forces to stage a performance on Privacy. Their work revolves around the information and imagery that we choose to make public, asking how it affects our sense of privacy and intimacy. What, in short, motivates our decision to expose ourselves publicly? And how can this trend be related to the increasingly blurred line between the private and the public sphere? Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg stated recently that privacy is no longer the social norm. This appears almost surprising when bearing in mind that not so long ago, artists moved and provoked spectators with their dirty sheets and filthy cigarette stubs, by filming the birth of their child and sharing intimate sex scenes.

The performance by Ward Weemhoff and Wine Dierickx, who are also a couple in real life, tests the limits of shame and intimacy while contemplating the usefulness of masks and secrets. “Privacy“ is choreographed as a striptease of personal confessions. It confronts us with our own ethical stances, our almost nostalgic desire for the erotic and our truly post-private pornography.
