ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE

Enough About You, a participatory performance by Einat Amir. In collaboration with the MAXXI Museum, Rome and the Lilith Performance Studio, Sweden, Amir’s performance is both ambitious and stimulating. Enough About You explores relationships in their most organic state, revealing how individuals relate to one another when confronted with a constructed reality, as strangers become intimate and viewers become voyeurs. It is inspired by the new possibilities of virtual socialising and the instant intimacies offered in modern times. Amir blurs the boundaries between performance and authenticity constructing lab-like circumstances in an attempt to test the limits and relations between two strangers in an intimate situation.
