In “I’m still lumbered with the banal descriptor Minimalist” a performer takes on the role of The Prompter, seated in the middle of a picnic. Guided by live sound, played on a butt-shaped cymbal-esque ‘instrument’, The Prompter takes the audience on a journey through the thoughts and feelings of various public sculptures, highlighting themes like voyeurism and visual codes of seduction.
Caz Egelie is an artist based in the Netherlands and creates installations, performances, two-dimensional works and videos. In their multi-disciplinary body of work the visual vocabulary of the works is combined with Caz’ conceptual approach, and their appetite for theater and performativity. Often referring to other artists, Caz’ works question themes such as authenticity and originality. Caz studied Fine Arts at the HKU in Utrecht and has recently exhibited and performed at CENTRALE Brussels (2021), Open Space London (2020), Centraal Museum Utrecht (2019) and Palais de Tokyo (2019).

In Singing Along, Eilit continues to adapt Adam Phillips book in her collection of Unforbidden Pleasures into choreographic tasks questioning the authorities that govern our desire. Singing Along attends the joy we take in joining a song one can’t resist. Five performers move in a persistent groove and staccato bursts from an inner experience to a collective shared act of uttering self expression, powered by a playlist.
In it’s most pure form Singing Along takes place while driving a car and listening to the radio. For Eilit, this is a casual and magical act of liberation, turning singing from a talent to an effective permission to be silly and fabulous. She is taken by its capacity to walk the line between embarrassment and empowerment when being moved by a song.
Eilit Marom is a choreographer, performance artist and an observer of human resonance based in The Hague. Inspired by her father who always gives her the best bite of his sandwich, she mirrors this care for the public. Her performances are transdisciplinary experiences, driven by a physical task so clear it offers freedom of interpretation. Born and raised in Israel, Eilit developed an international career as a performer, maker and teacher, setting her performances in theaters, museums such as Helmhaus (Zurich), Korzo (The Hague) and Supercell (Brisbane).

Working under the moniker whysoserious, Marijn creates soundscapes in which she looks at sci-fi and horror soundtracks as ways to express alienation and fear, and to rave and club culture as empowering strategies for a disrupted future. Whysoserious when it’s only the world that’s burning?

DUTY-FREE is a four-day long durational performance, consisting of a VICTIM, a TERRORIST, an ARTIST, and a CURATOR. Imported from far lands, traveled miles to arrive at this spot, what does this shipping crate for art carry inside? Which one of the four are you looking at?
In this new work, EMIRHAKIN invites the audience to think about the economy of an art fair, the economy of performance art, and the economy of attention. Why are you looking at what are you looking at?
