‘Eyes for you' was performed by Weeks & Whitford at Creature festival, Kaunas, Lithuania, September 2016. Following a period of protracted research involving Weeks working as a professional Dominatrix. Weeks & Whitford performed this exploration of the dynamics of a Domination and Submission alongside the conventions of a vanilla relationship. The work makes visible not only the aesthetics protocol and process of Fem Dom, it also frames the dynamic between the Dominatrix her submissive and her partner by placing them all within two separate contained but overlapping realities or zones of performance experience. The work juxtaposes the spectacle of the Dominatrix , her intimate interactions with others and the simultaneous quiet ongoing maintenance of a connection with her lover who endures in complicity. The work explores how we reassure each other, how we continue to share a reality despite divergent experiences.
