INSPIRATION  CONNECTION  INNOVATION
17. April – 09. May 2021

Together Alone

1st–2nd May

Corona has made this last year difficult for everyone. We have all had our social interactions restricted, leaving many feeling isolated and we have spent more time alone than ever before. The sea-change in how we all interact with other human beings has raised important questions about our sense of self and our relationship with the rest of society: how can we embrace this loneliness? If we are all alone, does it become more bearable? How can we connect with each other once this is all past? Connection and harmonisation is also a crucial part of Sunday’s topic: Improvisation. The big questions facing us and our society are encapsulated in our work as improvisers. We work as individuals to spontaneously build a beautiful piece of art while constantly interacting and adapting in the moment, never losing sight of our own qualities. Let’s improvise a more cooperative, interactive, productive society together!
