Featuring a restaging of Moniek Toebosch's work ๐˜’๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ ๐˜’๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ [Head to Head] (1994), performed by Adeline van Lier. The programme will be accompanied by a printed playbill and a booklet of translations, both designed by Maud Vervenne.

Directly engaging with the theatrical setting of Torpedo Theater, the forty-five short texts composing theater-maker, artist, educator and broadcaster Moniek Toeboschโ€™s 1994 work ๐˜’๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ ๐˜’๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ [Head to Head] will be performed as a one-person play. First exhibited as part of the Stedelijk Museumโ€™s 1994 exhibition ๐˜Š๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต 3, the workโ€”for which Toebosch wrote monologues and poems to accompany a selection of portraits held in the Stedelijk Museumโ€™s collectionโ€”is one of many pieces produced by Toesbosch that interweave text with performance and/or its implications.

The original format of the work revolved around three key elements: the selection of forty-five portraits from the Stedelijk Museumโ€™s collection, the writing of an accompanying text for each of the portraits and a series of 100 self-portraits taken between 1979 and 1994, published separately in book form. Within the exhibition itself, Toesbosch transformed her allocated room into a theatrical setting of sorts, fitted with theater chairs facing in the direction of one wall, on which a portrait hung. Each day for a total of forty-five days the portrait would be rotated, as would the accompanying texts, which were installed on an adjacent wall to the portraits. Therefore, while performance was implied by the setting and the components of the work, the monologue-like texts werenโ€™t activated by a performer but rather through the audienceโ€™s act of reading.

For this occasion, the texts will be recited one after the other by Dutch television and radio presenter Adeline van Lier, while the selection of paintings will be projected using slides and a projector. To stay close to the original work, the texts will be recited in Dutch, however a booklet of English translations will be available, designed by Maud Vervenne. A second component of the workโ€”an advertisement drafted by Toebosch posted in ๐˜๐˜ฆ๐˜ต ๐˜—๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ on Saturday, October 1, 1994โ€”will be included as an advertisement in ๐˜๐˜ฆ๐˜ต ๐˜—๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ on the day of Act II, restaging the work in its (adapted) entirety.
