Welcome to Wijnhaven 61

Site-specific performance

Guided tour of Willem de Kooning Academy Wijnhaven building using fictional information implying a corporate usage of the art school building, exploring the role of the woman as a communicator and the nature of the lower-tier, emotional labour within the workplace.

The audience were met in the lobby, and each participant was handed an itinerary, printed on official Hogeschool headed paper. They were then told that a meeting would be held, but that they would be given a short tour from the ground floor up to the fourth floor so they were slightly more familiar with their surroundings, stopping at each level to discuss what the floor was used for. The script had been developed following a previous performance (Roxy, Ashley and Monique) and the lines delivered on the tour were quotes from the conversations had during this research driven performance.
