This sound exploration is an immersive performance which invites participants to follow a woman on the street, while listening to an incel’s narrative (involuntary celibates). These “incels” are a community of straight men who gather online to share a common hatred of women. Once the exploration starts and the recording is playing, the person walking is confronted to the masculinist vision of a young incel whose story is told by a woman whose tone varies from fascination to anger; as a former teenage outcast, she identifies with some of his loneliness. With nuance and empathy, Pintozor Prod. delves into our contemporary turn towards systemic violence through the confrontation of these two perspectives.
This production has been recorded in English and in German, and it can be experienced simultaneously in these three languages.
