This dance performance explores privacy, the impact of surveillance and data breaches on post-human daily life. The narrative emphasizes the openness for intersubjectivity and resilience. Witness Euseon's transformation into shadow and Sundari's journey from unaware to self-discovery. As the monitored content unravels and electronic voices mock, the dancers’ data are being used in disturbed ways.
This project invites the audiences/participants to reflect on the complexities of existence and the quest for agency in a hyper-connected world.
