Meet my friends is a participatory performance that invites random passers-by in a public park to meet each other.
The performance addresses the difficulty to meet strangers due to the ongoing covid-19 restrictions by creating moments of encounters that can be a short conversation, a discussion or a start of a deeper relationship.
The work was presented during the Current Open Air, event by Current: a space that took place in the Westerpark in Amsterdam. Dresses in a the outfit of a jogger Dimitri was approaching passers-by and inviting them to meet one of his friends who are in the park. If the passer-by agreed Dimitri introduced them to one of the visitors of the event.
