Re:connect is a perfomance, focusing on the social behavior and relation between human beings.
How people interact with each other but more importantly the lack of any interaction nowadays.
As we become more and more individual, we tend to constantly close off in our own cocoons. In the 21st century, with all the technologies surrounding us, real communication and interaction is lost. We try to stay connected through our devices, without realizing how this creates even greater distance between us. People are afraid to be vulnerable. They’d rather keep virtual distance than to face reality.
Re:connect is a tool for two persons to experience daily life physically connected. One has to allow himself to be led and be the leader simultaneously. When the two bodies are synchronized - trust is established. The invisible connection that human relations are entirely based on.
