RE:connect explores our dependence on technology and the epidemic of loneliness it has caused. The depth of the connections we make to other humans is now often sacrificed for the quantity of connections we make. We feel the need to constantly be connected and share our experiences in order to feel that we are not alone, but in the process we have forgotten how to connect with ourselves. If we do not learn how to be alone, we will be forever lonely.
Rehearsals are in progress for a new dance collaboration with choreographer Sarah Hopkin and dancer Kathleen Legassick. The music will be scored for electronics and baritone sax to be performed by Olivia Shortt. Here are some short clips of some of our music and movement experiments!
More clips will be revealed as the piece unfolds… The complete work will be presented at the end of April!
