What happens behind closed doors—figurative, fictional, imaginary, or real. So many private gestures transform into meaningful movements. This video series plays with intimacy by reclaiming words and body, habits and the everyday. Domestic spaces become performative, go beyond their own limitations.

The screening will be followed by a performance by Les666 and Matt Miwa.
