    • language no problem
  • As one of the leading authors of the 20th century, James Baldwin denounced important racial and sexual misdeeds. Choreographer Ryan Djojokarso sought inspiration for his new performance in his book Giovanni’s Room (1956). What happens to you, when you are so afraid that you can no longer love? The American David is about to marry Hella, but falls deeply in love with the Italian Giovanni in Paris. We follow David through the night leading up to the most horrible morning of his life, when his lover will be gone forever.

    “His touch could never fail to make me feel desire; yet his hot, sweet breath also made me want to vomit.” - uit: Giovanni’s Room, James Baldwin (1956)
