Bus Tour - Building Site / Building Sight

The bus tour is a sightseeing through the city of Breda with a tour bus. I'm the tour guide during the trip. I talk about the city, the history, good coffee bars to visit and my personal experiences. What people don't know is that I talk about the city that I currently living in, Rotterdam. The unsuspecting participants are taken on a journey through my imagination.

The original plan was to talk about Breda, but I thought it would be more interesting to use the city structure of Breda while talking about Rotterdam. If you were a total stranger, unfamiliar with these cities, you'd believe everything I said. At first I inform people about personal stuff like chickens of a friend of mine, or about playing football in the park with some kids. Slowly the personal subjectivity morphs into more objective information like history and architecture. The audience individually experience a moment of awareness about the truth of the story that I'm telling. Was it all a lie? What is true? Why did I believe anything?

The project was part of Building Site / Building Sight by Kop Breda.

Body Tour - De Parade

De parade in Amsterdam was leuk. Vanuit mijn Jacuzzi deed ik een nieuwe performance. De body tour. Een route over mijn lichaam beginnend op het puntje van mijn neus en eindigend bij mijn grote teen. Onderweg vertel ik verschillende verhalen over het betreffende plekje, zoals mijn overgevoelige tepel, het gaatje achter mijn oor en de knak in mijn enkel. Hieronder een kort beeldverslag.
