In 1980, the artists Kit Galloway and Sherrie Rabinowitz connected two bigger-than-life displays in New York and LA with a satellite feed and thus created a public communication sculpture, a “hole in space” so to speak. Inspired by their tele-collaborative art, choreographer Diego Tortelli and his team have developed a new creation almost entirely online.

Six dancers from Munich, Berlin and Milan, a performer from Berlin, a videographer from Munich and a London-based composer and drummer met with Tortelli exclusively via one-on-one video chats during the production phase, only to put all these artistic puzzle pieces together on the day before the premiere. By using all the possibilities of the online world, they overcame the spatial and physical distance currently imposed on our lives to celebrate the first live moment of coming together in all its spontaneity and elation.
