This one-on-one performance deliverse a peformer in a box. The body is exposed as a delivered good. A private space becomes a stage. "Private Dancer" questions the performance as a tool for unexpected encounters, boby-work as paid work and the human body as an artistic fiber.
You could book this performance, out of six offered performance-boxes online, as part of the project "Unboxing Unboxing" by performance collective "geheimagentur" in 2020.
one-on-one performance, delivered into private appartments around Hamburg
Packaged in material of logistics, the performance follows a choreographie of glance and poses for the duration of five songs (Robert Hood - Dancer, Grace Jones - I´ve seen that face before, Stereo Total - Tanzen im Viereck, Fatboy Slim - Praise You). An intimate situation will be built up even there are no live spoken words taken. The feeling of shame wil be provoked. The living room transforms into a dancefloor and a place for co-presence of strangers.
web research and elaboration of the performance
"Unboxing Unboxing" (geheimagentur): Before Corona already we had planned to make a performance about logistics and to deliver ourselves to your homes. In previous projects in the port of Hamburg we experienced logistical zones as places we are not allowed to enter. Zones that are not public. And the uncanny thing is that these zones are expanding, not only in the port, but everywhere, without us noticing – not least because people are ordering more and more things to their homes. When the logistical zone ends at your front door then there is no public left between the non-public zone of logistics and the non-public zone of the home, no place from where the logic of logistics can be observed, or logistical space can be reclaimed. Because everything has been pulled together in a few clicks and in the performance of unboxing that everyone then again watches online. That’s why we decided to unbox the performance of unboxing and to deliver performances in boxes. Now more than ever we will do this because we are missing so many things that cannot be delivered. Our boxes are filled with touch, drinks, dance, utopias, and much more. Place your order now and we will deliver to your doorstep or to your living room, either contactless or masked, everything from Pandora’s box to the black box.
