The Concept

What do you desire? What turns you on? 

„DOING HER - the fetish edition“. An interactive one-to-one performance. The setting of a photo shooting. The performer’s body as a canvas to explore the principles of pleasure. An endless loop of construction and destruction. A consensual power play between the muse and the spectator. One picture as the trace of this transient encounter.

The Performance

 

The interactive performance takes place in a box. The performer is inside the box. 

 

Outside of the box, the Pink Rabbit will watch the entry to the box. The visitors can peek into the box through little peep holes.

If they dare to enter the box and interact with the performer, the visitors can chose a fetish from the Pink Rabbit's and enter the space one by one. The Pink Rabbit will monitor the interaction time which is limited to 7.3 minutes - the average duration of a sexual encounter.

 

Once inside the box, the performer will enquire the visitor about their chosen fetish and together the two of them will then try to visualize that fetish together using the provided material by the performer (body paint, hair, props, clothes, random objects,…) and using the performer’s body. At the end of this consensual creation process, the result will be shot by the performer by the means of a self-portrait. The visitor can be allowed to participate in the staging process. After that, the visitor will be asked to leave and the next visitor will be let in by the Pink Rabbit if the performer is ready.

 

The performance is accompanied by live music, performed by the queer and eclectic performance and music collective Music For Eggplant.

The pictures created during the performance will be shared online through social media following the performance.
