Reframing Conventions, Red Light District (2020)

In this work I am researching the act of sitting, resulting in a live performance where I am solely sitting for 8 hours on the same chair, without performing any other human action. The original video and live performance of this work is from 2013. During these times of the Corona virus outbreak, I realized that this research into the act of sitting has gained another layer. Therefore I started to relaunch this work anno 2020. Same relevance, different context.

This is the fourth time I performed 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).

Briefly talking about my 8-hour performance at The Red Light District in a show of Pakhuis de Zwijger.
