(h) OOGstraat dance performance
“the perfect flaneur is a passionate observer”
(free to Charles Baudelaire).
(h) OOGstraat is a dance performance on location by Liat Magnezy) the project takes place in and around the many shop windows on the Hoogstraat in Schiedam. Just like so many Dutch high streets the Hoogstraat used to have, next to its commercial function, an important social function. The street was used to “flaneren”, the walking about to see and to being seen. The performance wants to reinstate this function of old. By seducing the audience to move itself from one scene to another it will be possible to see and experience the performance in a walk of approximately one hour. The dancers and musicians move as independent individuals trough the street who and have frequent meetings which deliver intriguing dance scenes. The audience isn’t a static group of consumers but an active group observers who are part of the performance without taking part of it.
Performance dates: June 30, July 1, July 7, July 8, September 1, September 2, September 8, September 9. Time 12:00 am and 15:00 pm
The dance performance is FREE of charge
