A disarming performance about looking, showing and being seen
In Show Me three female dance performers use their bodies, language and physical interaction to explore the do's and don'ts around 'looking, showing and being watched' with an audience. Where do you place yourself? In the dark or close to one of the spotlights that illuminate the space? Who looks at who, what is revealed by what we look at and how easily do you look at someone when you are seen by others?
With references to online (sharing) behavior, Show Me invites to a shared experience, a physical game in which unquestioned social codes become visible and open to discussion. Everyone's decency is at stake and the game also brings up some challenge and friction.
Show Me plays in theater, on alternative locations and festivals.
As an audience you will make space for research into loneliness, proximity and touch together and yet alone - each has its own tent.
The100Hands is proud to be one of the ten makers who were asked by Theaterfestival Boulevard to make something special for 'Afzender Boulevard'.
