The autofictional solo “Men and me” starts with several confessions by the performer. With an ambiguously distorted voice she recounts her childhood misconceptions of the male anatomy, growing up without a father, her relationship with her mother and failed pubescent developmental stages.
During the second part two psychoanalytical sessions are recreated with male audience members as stand-ins. They lead to the transgression of a surprise french kiss, separated only through the gallery window.
Finally the performer lip-syncs to a cover version of “I want you to want me”.
First presented in LABOR, Cologne as part of the exhibition “A Potential Disaster” together with works by Esther Janssen in 2019. Duration: 20 min.
