A collaboration between Pell Ensemble and
Lorenza Lo from Flock Collective.
A journey from intimacy to isolation driven by mobile technologies and our need to communicate.
“We expect more from technology and less from each other. We create technology to provide the illusion of companionship without the demands of friendship.”
'K' was commissioned and premiered at Wilton's Music Hall as part of Wilton's Strike September 2014. With two hand held and two fixed projectors, as well as 400 paper planes, the dancers seek to communicate with each other, the audience and themselves. Messages dance around the space in projected words and flying planes, eroding the dancers relationship as they become increasingly present.
