    You’re alone as you enter a house—a house belonging to someone you don’t know. Your only guide is the voice coming through a pair of headphones, inviting you to look around. How far do you go? Do you take a peek into the fridge, visit the bathroom, go through the mail, take a rest on the bed? The hyper-realistic audio tour Look Inside is the second part of a series of works with the collective title Common Good. Through these, social theater maker Nadja van der Weide investigates how we can be open to real contact with others.

    While the voice makes you feel at home, you also become aware of the of the traces of the unknown residents: they didn’t clean up before you entered. Experiencing the vulnerability of someone’s most intimate space creates a tender context for reflection. What is voyeurism, and how does this voyeuristic adventure make you feel?

    Winner of the 2018 Netherlands Film Fund DocLab Interactive Grant.
