The Wildes - a Victorian salon

23 Feb 2014 - 18:00
Henry and Ida Wilde

The Wildes
Ida & Henry Wilde
The Wildes invite you into their Victorian salon. As our guests you will partake in an exhibition and a book, performed texts and animated images, light refreshments and even lighter entertainment, many hats and scarves, as well as the history of the unconsumed marriage of Ida and Henry Wilde. The two of us would like to share some of our private lives, to host this salon which lends a new visibility to our everyday performance. 

Since several years, Ida Wilde has been drawing the real life of Mr. and Mrs. Wilde in Victorian-style illustrations which will be presented at the salon. New illustrations are shown as an exhibition, narrated and sung by Henry Wilde in a performance and lecture-storytelling for the guests.
The hosts mingle with the audience, there is tea and cake, the mood and costumes are ceremonial, the conversation courtly, the program challenging ones notions of identity, gender, marriage, and community .
Please dare to come dressed in your finery!

We look forward to welcoming you to our salon.
Ida & Henry Wilde
