Reframing Conventions, Red Light District
Live-performance intervention (guerrilla)
Duration: 8 hours
This work is about the act of sitting, resulting in a performance piece where the artist solely sits down for 8 hours on the same chair, without performing any other human action. During the COVID-outbreak, this research into the act of sitting has gained another layer. Therefore, Ros started to revise this work. Same relevance, different context.
This is the fourth guerrilla performance of this work during the intelligent lockdown in The Netherlands (29/30-05-2020).
Taking a moment to show our respect and appreciation to sex workers; as sex work is work! Doing this performance in the dystopian Red Light District, in one of the rooms, in the nightly timeslot (from 6PM til 2AM).
