Half-Dutch, half-Brazilian, THE KID (1991) is a self-educated contemporary artist who questions restlessly since his early teenage years the notion of social determinism and the thin frontier between innocence and corruption.
When asked why he chose to put his personal aesthetic and his various technics at the service of these social issues, THE KID likes to quote Oscar Wilde in "The Picture of Dorian Gray":
"Behind every exquisite thing, there is something tragic."
That's the thing, that all his subjects have in common - behind their youth and beauty lies a tragic story - like a flower that is destined to fade. His goal is to "capture them in their defining moments, forever caught between innocence and corruption".
THE KID is a committed supporter of the International Non Governmental Organization Human Rights Watch, which defends Human Rights worldwide, in particular for its fight against unfair social discrimination and inhumane juvenile justice.
A wealthy and powerful man is betrayed by those closest to him, and under the guidance of his trusted confidant, devises a fiery requital. With a nod to the proscenium, this darkly comedic chamber piece stars Oscar Isaac, Tim Rock, Erika Rankin, Helen Rogers, and Julian Shatkin. Written and directed by Brian Petsos.
