What does community and integration mean?
Wearing silent disco head phones, you are invited to enter the stage rather than the auditorium and given instructions live through a series of choreographed meetings. You have permission to look, touch, assume and judge.
Choose how you respond, moving into lines, groups and pairs. Watched only by Hanna & Heidi, you can use appearance, physicality and reactions as a guide to negotiate one another as you cooperate. Immersed in light and sound, you will experience being alone and together at the same time.
In Strangers and Others, Hanna and Heidi raise questions around socialisation, tolerance, autonomy, contribution, exposure and choice.
Will you follow the social codes and play your part?
