The Apple of Contention

A performance about beauty

A performance about what beauty is

Beauty has been the subject of contention for centuries. We judge and are judged on the basis of external features. But what determines that we like someone and why do we find one more beautiful than the other? In ‘The Apple of Contention’ we look for answers by following in the footsteps of the beautiful goddesses and conquer the apple. Or you can choose the role of Paris and decide who is the fairest of them all. Beware: discord is lurking.

‘The Apple of Contention’ was made for the Night of Art and Science Groningen on June 4th, 2016 together with cosmetic plastic surgeon Berend van der Lei and photographer Marielle Gebben.
