Follow the journey of our two protagonists on their quest to reconnect from remote locations.

Chloe is in London, Kristia is in New York. How can they keep or develop their intimate relationship? While using technology to communicate, can they touch and feel each other online? Follow the journey and struggles of those two protagonists on their quest to reconnect from remote locations.

In this live performance between London and New York, where telepresence is mixed with networked wearable technology, we explore what intimacy means to us, especially when physical presence is not possible. Can these technologically mediated interactions lead to intimate embodied connections?

This dance film is a recording of the live performance that happened on the 6th of February 2021, during the Open Online Theatre. The show was performed and edited live between London and New York. To preserve the impact of the original performance, there hasn’t been any post-production.
