disConnect

2019 | ,

Description

A co-participatory interactive performance exploring the effects and impact of self-inflicted and forced disconnection from the world, symbolizing the self-defeating result of isolation in a globalized world.

Concept

The lifeblood of the connections with people around us is symbolised by red strings connecting the audience with the performer. The more connections we have, the stronger everybody stands. Every broken connection cause suffering and makes us weaker, regardless of who or how the connection is broken. As the audience, as well as the performer, breaks connection after connection, the performer increasingly suffers and in the end, collapses.

Background

There are at least 10,000 Danish political refugees who have been forced to flee to other European countries. Every week yet another Danish citizen loses the right to family life in their own country.
