Description

You are blindfolded. You are tied up in a wheelchair. There is no stage, no audience, no place where actors perform under lights. Actually, you don’t know where you are, but you have your suspicions. You are imagining something. Maybe you were here before. Maybe not. Let yourself be guided by us. You are safe. We'll take care of you. A new version of the legendary show that debuted Ontroerend Goed at the Fringe. 10 students of KASK School of Arts updated and recreated the original show to be relevant for 2022.

Edinburgh Guide (5/5 stars) 2 days ago

The depth of smells and sounds, touches, both arresting and pleasurable, and (yes) taste are completely enveloping, as the absence of sight amplifies the remaining senses. While your body is manipulated and whispered to, the disoriented mind ruminates on consent, fear, isolation, animalism, submission, accessibility, loneliness, belonging, loss, love…will the electricity of this savage and thrilling closeness burn as much as it excites?
