The artists Kit Galloway and Sherrie Rabinowitz, who in 1980 connected two larger-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 the choreographer Diego Tortelli and his team to work out a new creation completely online. Six dancers from Munich, Berlin and Milan, a performer from Berlin, a Munich videographer and a London based composer and drummer only meet in one-on-one video chats with Tortelli, only to put all these artistical puzzle pieces together one day before the premiere. They use all the possibilities of the online to undo any spatial and physical distance that currently determines our lives, in order to then celebrate the first joint live moment in all its spontaneity and tension for the first time.
