What happens when we lose ourselves in another, in unrequited love? And what happens to our reality if we are only concerned with ourselves and our own image? What does this ancient myth tell us about the world of Zoom, Tinder and Instagram?

With a very diverse team, coming from dance, design, and technology, the makers used the lockdown to create a completely new experience. Developed to experience small group stages during the highly anticipated reopening of stages. At a time when we’ve all had to isolate ourselves, crave contact, and live through screens, they wondered: what exactly is contact? How do you make contact? And what would happen if we could see all this through the eyes of the other?
