Disrupting Solitude premiered in 2017 at The Space Between: The Incubator Festival, an interdisciplinary exploration in technology, movement, sound, design and performance. Disrupting Solitude ponders the agency of the human in an increasingly digitally mediatized existence and invites participants to artistically explore the dynamic relationship, tension and potential that exists between people, between people as mediated through technology and the invasive seduction by technology in contemporary life. We question the impact of a virtually mediated relationship, while your potential partner exists in the flesh across the room.
