Award-winning director Lotte van den Berg’s Pleinvrees/Agoraphobia explores the impossibility of being together: we desire to be among people yet fear it; we hope to share our lives with others, but fearful of loss, we keep to ourselves.
Performed amidst the bustle of Times Square, a solitary man walks around, apparently talking to himself. Yet his words are streamed to bystanders and eavesdroppers— audience members who have called in to listen to him on their cell phones. Pleinvrees/Agoraphobia is at once an intimate performance about how this solitary man experiences the world and an insightful experience for an audience of spectators and passers-by.
