The power of touch
What does being together mean in 2016? Five dancers are set in motion by the audience. Networks of action emerge from simple social interactions. Mazing reconfirms the power of touch in our digital age.
Today, the social is a performance, and performance is a social event. Can we create new models of togetherness through performance?
Mazing and catch a glimpse of a possible answer, based on the simple power of the dancing body, the factuality of movement and the fragility of contact.
