Peep Dance challenges the perception of the traditional structure of viewing a dance-theatre piece and creates a new relationship between the audience and a site specific performance. It challenges and stretches the boundaries between the audience and the dancers, via fostering a dialogue between dance and other mediums.
The choreographer Nimrod Freed invites a random audience and passersby to an artistic event in the public space, in which he challenges the audience with a new observation experience in dance performances. He invites the audience to peep through peepholes in a dance performance inside a peep cell, to enjoy surprising angles of view and to watch contemporary dance in a new perspective, through a new lens.
PeepDance is exploring the connection between intimacy and daily life and between observation and voyeurism. The peeping action takes place anytime and everywhere in our virtual and physical space – between one another and between the regime and its citizens.Where is reality culture headed? Are we losing our right to privacy?
