FOLLOWING & VOYEURISM


This Stand up, Dear City workroom explored the theme of Following & Voyeurism. We looked at why we are attracted to some and follow others - Is it a desire to become that person? a jealous drive? escapism and fantasy, living your life through the actions of others? we also questioned why, for example, we are seduced by the notion of the stranger and why the idea and act of following can also become a mirror for looking back at ourselves. The walk started with a simple game yet ended with a decisive search for an other. This was a workroom for people watchers, park bench voyeurs and closet peepers.




Everything is there; one must never come into contact, one must follow, one must never love, one must be closer to the other than his own shadow. And one must vanish into the background before the other turns around.(Jean Baudrilliard)
