In de Bosjes
January 18th 19:45-20:15 January 18th 21:15-21:45 FRAS 3
During his residency at Theater Van Deyssel, Barnaby focused on delving into the history of the natural and cruising area known as 'de Oeverlanden' in the Nieuw West district. During Come Together he will expand this research over the entire city. His research draws from archival material, audio snippets from interviews with cruisers, visual elements, and construction materials. Since 2020, Barnaby has dedicated his efforts to researching the history of cruising in Amsterdam—specifically, the pursuit of and engagement in sexual encounters in public spaces.
In de Bosjes (working title) is a multimedia experiential installation that seeks the tension of intersecting gazes. Using fragments of stories, the audience is invited to explore the installation as a space.
