“Elagoz’s self-presentation very intelligently exposes a taboo subject.” De Standaard

“( * * * * * ) hyper-personal research is layered and universal” theaterkrant.nl

“ ( * * * * ) …She assembles and edits all this into a film that is as raw-realistic as it is frivolous, as moving as it is funny, as dramatic as it optimistic. “ Knack Magazine

“..raw but elegant..” volkskrant.nl

Cock, Cock… Who’s There? is an unsettling, touching and private documentary performance of a young woman’s research into intimacy and violence. Through online platforms and close encounters with unknown people, Samira Elagoz takes the audience on her journey of regaining power, reinventing autonomous expression of sexuality, and attempts at relating to men.

Due to explicit content the age limit is 18+.
