Description

Today we are living in the age of systemic loneliness. Social media, technology, economic system, consumer culture, neo-liberal work ethics and urban way of living are contributing to the rise in loneliness and benefiting from it at the same time. Together they form a system that exposes us to loneliness on a daily basis and on a global scale.

“The Intervention of Loneliness" is therefore a response to the systemic loneliness and human disconnection that Ming experiences and sees around him. In this work, he explores the potential of vulnerability and intimacy as tools of  empowerment. Slow dancing becomes an act of resistance as bodies reach out, make contact and hold each other.

Taken from an earlier public intervention, “Dance with Me”, where he travelled to different cities asking strangers on the streets to slow dance with him, he now develops it into a collaborative performance that invites the audience to confront systemic loneliness together. How can we own loneliness, rather than letting it own us? How can we transform it from a place of separation and isolation into a cause for collective action? A spontaneous choreography emerges, as the audience negotiate for their common cause.

Co-produced by Scenario Pubblico (Catania, Italy), The 2019 Expo Festival (Berlin,Germany) and da:ns festival (Singapore)
