DISCLOSURES is a performance that invites different people to share their stories, fears, and confidences, demystifying borders of privacy and nakedness as they strip away their clothes. Being naked/nakedness are intimate experiences closely related to one’s individuality and the social norms of one’s surroundings. Whether an extrovert or introvert, the idea of nakedness connotes meaning for everyone –- about borders, privacy, shame, vulnerability, and social order. It can also serve as a powerful affirmation of self, an empowering mirror through which one might not only see oneself, but also more fully see others. For the purposes of this experiment/performance, nakedness is utilized as a vehicle for the individual’s story, reason, self-representation—a history in which all these meanings are condensed.
