FRINGE: Comfort Girls

JASON GWEN | ARNHEMS WORK

Jason Gwen komt tijdens Amsterdam Fringe Festival naar de foyer van Oostblok met een vijf uur durende pop-up bar installatie. Hij is hierbij geïnspireerd door de zogenaamde Karaoke Ôm (Karaoke Hugging) bars uit Vietnam. Je kunt op ieder moment binnen komen lopen en de performance is gratis toegankelijk in het café, dus kom langs en laat je verrassen!

COMFORT Girls is being preceded by a research on the over 5 million people being human trafficked in the past 15 years. From Russia and Eastern Europe to other parts of the world. A dissection and celebration of the hospitality and sex workers industry, a setting to play around with the current urgent question towards cultural diversity and an offering of intimacy, without having to do the deed.
