A Commission by SYDNEY DANCE COMPANY as part of New Breed 2018.

Imagine the present era is over. Some predict future humans will be aided, guided and minded over by artificial intelligences, super-capturing their lives, pointing them in useful directions, engineering their serendipity, personalising their remote presence, hapticsizing their intimacy and keeping them constantly switched on to networks. Others predict future humans will prize disconnection in the same way we seek out Wi-Fi, and the skills of deep human interaction, empathy, physical touch and the innate sensing of what other people are thinking or feeling will be the most valued in their societies.

This work places the body at the heart of this investigation.
