We live in a media infested world where we depend heavily on technology to survive.  Electrical wires entangle themselves around the bodies of the dancers making visible the invisible web of the past.  

 

The wires are both beneficial and detrimental; they provide inspiration for the future by acting as lifelines to past experiences. The forces of technology and the past are not working separately but in tandem. 

 

 

The performers are constantly negotiating these aspects of their personalities moving between the human and the robotic, the empathetic and estranged, the plugged in and the cut off..
