poster for Zuidelijk Toneel Globe, 1983, silkscreen
King Oroonoko has muscles, but they are hanging in a body without a backbone. One caress from a Dutch slave trader gives him a hard on and he forgets his people, which becomes easy prey and gets shipped off to America. For this picture I was more acting as director, because Boudewijn Neuteboom took the photo. His professional approach is an absolute necessity for a picture like this. If I done it myself, I’m afraid the photo would have been a failure.
