Performing the self – the interview
Mestizo Art Festival 2017
How much confidence do you need to have someone fit your baby for an hour? Naming someone in your office like a cop? How can one find out if someone is sufficiently credible (and enough) to get the keys to your home? To drive with your car? Being your psychologist? Is a woman credible if she lies about her age? A hidden teenager that was adopted? A man next to his salary against his wife? Can we trust our trust?
A man and a woman are sitting opposite each other. A security officer and an asylum seeker await the interpreter. A conversation will start. They flirt, philosophize and reveal their mutual expectations.
“Performing the self – the interview” is an intimate dialogue on credibility, trust, mutual expectations and the portrait of one’s own truth.
The performances are in English and Arabic with Dutch subtitles.
