24.03.2022 [CLICK BAIT TITLE] (performance)
+ Umlilo (dj set)
[CLICK BAIT TITLE] is an event at the intersection of performance, installation, celebration and dance.
Is there a place for us to meet, just the way we are today: humans made from flesh and blood, with overloaded dopamine receptors, shortened attention spans, “socially distanced” and at the same time part of a connected global community?
Glass surfaces, greasy smudges from swiping, typing and zooming, ring lights reflected in HD pupils, the clack of acrylic nails on a retina display. Beyond the touchscreen: a craned neck, blue light on your face, noise-canceling headphones covering your ears. They’re playing “Nothing Compares 2U” by Sinead O’Connor.
Welcome to a dance between the analog and the virtual world. We are moving where otherwise only the glass of the cell phone screen can be found.
