a dance duet about intimacy in digital times


(2019 - 2020)

In second two people try to come closer together. They fight with the stigmas of digital culture and the way it blocks their humanity. Through the means of dance and sound they question the way we connect with each other these days.

The performers try to hold on to physical intimacy with the simple action of a hug, while they struggle with constant distractions.

Can intimacy sustain when the physical actions are absence?

second confronts you with the quality of physical intimacy today. Performers Daniel Barkan and Enrico Meijer are looking for a new form of intimacy in our digital society.
