“The purpose of life explored through the lens of a camera… One hell of a performance!”
– Le Soir, Belgium

The definitive spy-ware performance – a voyeur’s paradise. Kaldor invites the 19-year-old Nada to present her large collection of photographs – for years she has been observing people, taking ‘spy-photos’ of them, capturing their private moments. The core of Nada’s interest is to trace the various life-strategies that people follow. Driven by curiosity, she becomes witness to a wide range of – at times excessive – human behavior. Together with the audience she autopsies the images, implications and patterns that emerge. She aims to get a comprehensive overview and reach the ultimate conclusion: the vision of a life worth pursuing.

Edit Kaldor was born in Budapest. At the age of 13 she immigrated with her mother to the United States, where she lived for ten years. After receiving her degree in English and Theater at Barnard College (New York) and University College (London), she worked for 6 years with Peter Halasz (Squat theater/Love theater, New York), collaborating on numerous theater performances and filmscripts. She then enrolled at DasArts (the postgraduate performing arts center in Amsterdam), where she started making her own theatre pieces, which soon received international acclaim.

She currently lives and works in Amsterdam and Brussels and makes theater performances that tend to integrate the use of digital media, like Or Press Escape (2002), New Game (2004), Drama (2005), Point Blank (2007). In the past years she has been invited to perform her work in about 30 countries around the world.
