In some places they spit strangers out, while in others they swallow them whole.
EXOOT – Tropical Healing is an exhibition and show where we can reconquer our exotic selves and think about cannibalism as a healing strategy for dealing with The Other. Beneficial therapy for the diluted identities of world citizens.
Visual artist Jan Brokof is converting the Vriend van Bavink Gallery in Amsterdam into a theatrical installation, a pool paradise where tropic iconography is recycled: coconut juice, hummingbirds, helicopters, conquistadores, buzzing air conditioning units, Brazilian wax and palm trees.
Directed by Joachim Robbrecht, De Warme Winkel actor Ward Weemhoff and Brazilian actress Mariana Senne dos Santos play continents in love, searching for an uninhabited island where they can start over.
