Privacy

The boundary between public and private has been demolished and there’s no way back.

Privacy is no longer the social norm.

On stage an unmade bed, an open wardrobe, a kitchen table, a laptop and a full fridge, a stilled bouquet of flowers, a stray cigarette. We find ourselves in Ward and Wine’s living room, two actors, who are also a couple in real life. Manoeuvring between fiction and fact, between re-enactments of iconic artworks and their private lives, they evoke a time when the intimate still had something mysterious / erotic.

A philosophical common or garden conversation develops around the question ‘How much intimacy can a human being put up with?’

“It is vulgar, embarrassing and hilarious, sometimes all at once.”
Joukje Akveld (Parool)

“A hilarious game unfolds in which sincerity and facade, intimacy and alienation compete for priority.”
Sara van der Kooi (Trouw)
