1) Why do you choose to be anonymous in this documentation?
I wish to remain discrete.

2) What were your thoughts and feelings when you first read about Undressing Room?
“How does this work?”, “What is this about?”, “Why is this art?”. But then, art is personal appreciation of a personal experience. If we don’t try, how would we know what that personal experience is and whether we appreciate it or not. I had never seen such an approach before, so I was curious.

3) Describe your experience of Undressing Room.
Interesting. Briefing was detailed. I found the tea interlude very stressful because it was in silence: there was nothing for me to do in complete silence. The undressing and body contact was a relief because there was something for me to do, in silence.  The debrief was a good dialogue

4) What was it like for you, being a participant in Undressing Room?
I was very comfortable with the undressing and body contact. Overall, it was a new “theatre” or “art” experience for me and I appreciated it. The most challenging part was the tea interlude – there was nothing for me to do in the silence.

5) How was it for you to undress each other and touch each other’s naked skin?
It felt like a sense of “nature”. There was some arousals, but we just carried on without any contact of genitals

6) What did you get out from the whole experience?
Enlightening perspective:  I was stressed during the silence of the tea interlude, instead of at any other point of the experience. I did not expect to be averse to inactive silence. For me, Undressing Room is another experience of “performance art”.

7) Did you feel unsafe or threatened at any point in Undressing Room?
Not at all.

8) Would you participate in Undressing Room again?
Nope.  I have enjoyed the novelty of the experience. I will try other art experiences

9) Other comments.
A post event forum would be interesting to compare notes of what each one got out of it.
