more about the festival
Last few months, our movements and ways of communicating have been impacted by a global crisis. Distances between our bodies in public and private spaces have been regulated by new measurements. Our freedom of movement is on hold. Dancing became possible only in private, and suddenly it has a different meaning and context. It introduced another form of visibility, “performing” for the web camera on our online meetings, dates, events. In the beginning, it felt weird and awkward, but we are adjusting to it. Now it is time to emancipate the online body and get a deeper understanding of the new realness. It is time to unmute the body.
