How does it feel to stand opposite oneself, to discover oneself as a possible version of the self? How is it to question oneself as the self that could be or that could have been? In this intimate performance the performer appropriates the identity of the spectator and uses it. This may trigger irritation, wonder, but also allows for deep reflection on intimacy and the importance of our face/look in our identities.
The spectator has the opportunity to see themselves in various genders and bodies but also to see themselves in a new relationship to themselves and to ask their 'other' self questions. The field of tension results from the partial reversal of the performer-spectator relation, respectively from this reflective situation in which the mirror image is always a little distorted. Is it not true that one tends to see oneself in the other? And doesn’t this projection also allow for some empathy?
