The Showing is a site-specific dance/kinetic theater performance made for a private house. The piece operates around the playful suggestion that the house/apartment is up for sale; we, are invited inside by an estate-agent who is keen to make a deal. However the estate-agent’s delivery quickly moves from the impersonal to the personal and begins to reveal more about herself than the home in which we stand. Partly-improvised, with flashes of humour and warmth The Showing is a solo-performance dealing with ideas of femininity, fragility, strength and the everyday.
A well-lighted and energizing apartment that runs through
the building, with a good frame, in a dream location. Good
layout, great view and full of nice little details. In good shape, with carefully detailed surfaces. Frame condition checked –05. A unique custom-made property.
