'Gifts For Free'

Performance 'Gifts For Free' at STUK Leuven in 2005. A performance about why we give to people. Can we give without expecting something back? How does the selling of yourself works as a product? How can you reduce yourself as a piece of candy? The public receives candy, compliments and small talk for free. But what do you see behind this plastic show? There is a circle of tristesse, an inner pain you just can't laugh away. Or can you?
