ReFlex is an intimate experience at a minimum distance. In this short installation performance one audience member, step by step, is isolated from the outside world. Next is a play with light, darkness, reflection and objects giving the visitor an unexpected confrontation with him or herself and with the nearby performer. The performance is an invitation to introspection, but as well to imagine oneself in the other persons position.
“a theatrical caress”
“intimacy in isolation, this is exactly what I crave for at this moment in time”
‘It comes really close…. it’s an emotional experience”
“like being inside a Pink Floyd album cover”
ReFlex was developed in 2020 and 2021 as a reaction to Covid 19 and ‘social distance society’. It deals with the consequences this has on the interaction between individuals.The limitations due to Corona and the emotions evoked by this are used to make a subdued, confronting and valuable encounter possible between two individuals: a performer and an audience member. In 2021 ReFlex was succesfully presented at Deventer op Stelten, Fries Straatfestival (Netherlands) and Brucca festival (Germany).
