An experimental set-up that creates a kind of space within a space.

2Sides is an experimental set-up that creates a kind of space within a space, connecting and colliding both worlds – physical audience/performance and digital equivalent.

2Sides builds on the insights gained in the course of the Corona pandemic regarding liveness in the performing arts and focuses significantly on streaming formats and behaviors that go beyond a mere functional analysis of already known platforms such as Zoom and YouTube. The play with expectations of both the performers and the audience is crucial in this performance.

Four performers meet in a black box interacting with each other in front of an audience. At the same time they are filming themselves constantly, uploading content to a website specially programmed for this project and go live on Tik Tok and Instagram.

At home there is another audience that sits in front of their screen, observes the same dancers interacting with each other but experiences a different kind of performance. The website allows the user to customize their perspective on the show so that the online viewer always has the possibility to decide for a certain perspective / extract of the show.

Everybody watches the same show but do they really have the same or at least a comparable perspective?
