A Solo Dance Project
by daniel kok diskodanny
What if when I say I am working on my relationship with the audience I meant it literally?
What if when I look back at the audience from the stage, I can look at each of you in the eye and recognise you?
What if we have already had an intimate relationship by the time you come into the theatre to watch me?
Through the online portal, gayromeo.com, I went on 40 dates in 60 days in Berlin.
During the encounters, I ask each one for a gift in response to our relationship.
In exchange, I invite my gayromeos back to the performance where I return my gift in the form of a dance.
"You are going to be my bitch."
Looking me in the eyes, he smiled lightly and said in a thick German accent,
"You understand? You are going to be my bitch."
